Ninepipes draws artists and art lovers to Fair

Print Article

Unfortunately, extreme heat probably kept a lot of people from stopping in to enjoy the arts and crafts displayed for viewing and sale at the second-annual Cultural Arts Fair held Saturday at Ninepipes. Despite the heat, several vendors found shade under the large trees and enjoyed chatting with the visitors who came to appreciate their work. A vendor who showed last year estimated that about the same number of vendors were at this year’s show, but said that the art enthusiasts had been few in numbers. The vendors were still optimistic in the early afternoon heat hoping for people attending the Mission Valley Auction to stop in on their way home from that event.

Paintings, photography, sculptures, jewelry and a variety of crafts were featured in the numerous shelters on the South Side of the Ninepipes museum. Several talented local artists also worked on new pieces during the slow flow of interested spectators and customers. In addition, a few artisans displayed their skills in making arrowheads, spinning wool, and making bows while several people danced or swayed in the shade to the music being performed by local musicians.

Had the day been more weather friendly, the event would likely have attracted a much larger crowd as the art and the crafts were definitely worthy of more appreciation and of finding new homes in the abodes of those who discovered them.
