What I Love About September!
September greetings friends, collectors and lovers of art! There’s so many things to love about September, but I have to say that the Indie Craft Parade tops my list!!
Like it was yesterday, I still reminisce the day that ICP founders, Libby Ramos and Erin Godbey shared their ideas and business plan for the juried art market at Coffee to a Tea. With a twinkle in their eyes and enough vision, talent and work ethic to take on the world, the two of them created and launched Indie Craft Parade. Thanks to online marketplaces like Etsy, the public is fascinated by the personal nature of handcrafted products, now, more than ever. Libby and Erin spotted the trend and brought together the best artists in the Southeast and with an event that encourages interaction between the community and local independent artists. There is nothing like it!
Obsessed of course with the growing art and craft revolution, I am more eager than ever to see what this year’s ICP brings. Since lucky me is a juror, I’ve already had a sneak preview of the genius and creativity which lies all around us in the Greenville area.
Collectors get ready! ICP is almost here. You’ve gotta go! The VIP Gala is Friday night – get an exclusive first look at the work and enjoy music, free food and drinks – ticket info at indiecraftparade.com. Then the parade continues Saturday, Sept. 8th and Sunday September 9th. Take this opportunity to view 3D Fine Art, Fiber Art, Paper Goods, Handcrafted Jewelry and more that will give whole new meaning to the word “collect”. AND at the same time, it will completely enrich your life.
See you at the gallery and the parade!
