2014 Arden Fair Exhibitor

I was proud to continue my participation in the Arden Fair in Arden, DE for the seventh year. The event has occurred annually for over 106 years, with Arden artists and artisans presenting their most recent work. Held on the last Saturday of August, the tiny village is swarmed with over 10,000 people who come to buy art, books, antiques, and have fun with children's games. Music plays all day in the Beer Garden beneath the trees of the Shady Grove. Most astounding of all, the entire event is managed by volunteers, who clear the whole area the next day. Like Brigadoon, there is no hint of the great festivities held the day before.
