I will be attending only one more art festival in Oklahoma this spring, and likely only one in the fall.Due to an upcoming vacation, I will be skipping the Lawton Arts Festival, the Tulsa festivals (Mayfest and Blue Dome), and the Paseo Arts Festival in OKC.
If you are planning to see/purchase my new work this spring, I strongly encourage you to make the drive to Edmond.Downtown Edmond Art Festival
- Location: Edmond, Oklahoma on Broadway, between 2nd and Hurd
- Friday, April 29 - 10:00am to 8:00pm
- Saturday, April 30 - 10:00am to 8:00pm
- Sunday, May 1 - 11:00am to 5:00pm
If you have not been, it's a fantastic show! This is a strict "fine art" show, and the city of Edmond is generally upscale. Come on by, bring your friends, enjoy! (..unless your friends are dogs. They don't allow dogs at the show.)
Art in the Square - Utica Square, Tulsa
- Oklahoma artists only.
- Date & Time: TBA (usually the first Saturday in October)
And that's it.
What about the big show at OCCC? The one with the circus tents? Due to the Oklahoma budget shortfall, Oklahoma City Community College will not be able to fund Arts Festival Oklahoma in 2016. My heart sank as soon as I heard that news. I have participated in it since 2009, it has been a staple. It has certainly had more than its fair share of relentlessly hot weather, but it's still a darn fun show. I really hope it comes back next year.
Well, I do have some out of state shows.
I don't do very many out of state shows... I have a full-time job, and a lot of my work is based in Oklahoma.But if you're planning a road trip with friends, stop by and say hi!
