Photos from Studio City

I had a great show last weekend in Studio City, CA. Even though I was pretty busy, I took a few minutes to wander around the show and snap some photos.

Studio City Arts & Crafts Festival, May 2008

The show is held every year in the same location, in Moorpark Park at the intersection of Moorpark Street and Laurel Canyon Blvd in Studio City, CA. It’s a very nice grassy park with huge mature pine trees providing welcome shade.

This show includes a very wide variety of art and craft media. There’s something for everyone here, from inexpensive body-care products to the very best fine art and fine craft available in southern California. Here (above) you can see some gorgeous high-end ceramics, on the right.

The atmosphere at this show is relaxed. It’s a fun day out for friends and family, looking at art, shopping, people-watching, and munching on some snacks from the food booths. The park comes equipped with many picnic tables, so relaxation and rest is right at hand when the shopping gets too intense. There’s also an enclosed playground for children, which was well-used all weekend.

There’s my booth, above. I was located at the far end of the show. At first I was afraid it wouldn’t be a very good location, being so far off the main paths, but lots of people found me anyway. And my edge location gave me a little more space to spread out. So in the end it worked out quite well.

See you at my next show!

    I am SO jealous that you have sun! We couldn’t even THINK about doing an outdoor show up here in Washington. It’s been raining like crazy around here ….

    Congrats on a successful show!

    Thanks Anne-Marie!

    Today it got into the 90s. You are more than welcome to have some of our sun and heat. We have plenty to spare!

I'm an artist. I make paintings with dots.

I work in acrylic paint, in a couple of distinct styles: landscapes and abstracts.

Native to California, I've lived elsewhere and only recently returned to my home state. I now live in Los Angeles.

I mostly show my art in outdoor festivals in California. I also occasionally show my work in art galleries or open studio events. You can see an up-to-date list of upcoming shows on my website (click here).
