Only two more “Walkabout Wednesdays” left! Interact with demonstrating artists on self-guided artist demonstration tours, complimentary with admission.
Walkabout Wednesday artist, Ruth Wright:

“Jewelry and sculpture which share spontaneous compositions of gold, silver, and bronze, incorporating materials extending from fine gemstones to graphically dynamic found objects.” Ruth’s Walkabout Wednesday demonstrations will include techniques necessary to give life to each piece using hammer, saw, and oxyacetylene torch.

Come meet Ruth along with over 40 other participating artisans whom will personally share with you their creative processes and demonstrate exciting creative works right in their booths!

The last two Walkabout Wednesdays fall on August 19 and August 26.
