I went to a little art show this weekend called Fantasy in the Forest.
It was out on one of the many lakes that surround Kingston. We drove out towards Perth Road Village and parked in a farmer's field. The artist who was hosting the show had arranged for shuttles to drive from the parking area to the cabin where the displays were, about a kilometer or more along very narrow, twisty roads deep into the woods.
The artists had set up their tents along the shore of the lake. It was a beautiful setting.
The artists weren't keen on having their wares photographed, so these are mainly photos of the cottage and the lake where the show was held.
Look at this big spider on this coneflower!
They had a little cafe set up on the screened in porch where you could get homemade pie and lemonade. Or you could buy grilled sausage that was cooked in this amazing dragon barbecue!
In keeping with the theme, there were quite a few artisans who created fairy or fantasy-esque pieces.
These are not really my cup of tea, but, while the subject matter was not interesting to me, the talent and creativity that went into them was impressive. My favourite thing was not for sale. These photos show little seedpods that were growing outside one of the studio buildings. Less than an inch in diameter, they had been carved with little faces!
And in sewing news, I finished the last of the blocks I need to make the flower garden quilt that the Modern Tradition quilt bee helped me with. There are no photos, but with the blessing, I'll put the top together in the next couple of days. I'm excited to see how it looks all together!
