ArtFest Review

Wood-turners, plein aire painters, potters, basketeers, spinners, jugglers…Cub Scout gutter sailboaters, Boy Scout slot car racers and musicians packed Market Street in Minerva on June 2nd for the Great Minerva Market Street Turnoff and ArtFest. Twenty-two wood-turners, fifteen plein aire artists and many others created art works and crafts galore for the crowded street. With food, snacks and other refreshment availables, the public thronged to the event. To wrap up the event, the Market Street Art Spot held a reception on Friday, the 8th, to award prizes to five plein aire paintings created at the ArtFest. Erin T. Mulligan received “Best of Show” for her piece titled, “Normandy in the Sky”; Lynn Digby’s oil painting, “Fallen Tree” was given the “Award of Mastery” and “Minerva Dairy”, an acrylic painting by Anna Rather received the “Patricia M. Kishman Award of Excellence”. Sally Lytle and Lynda Rimke each received an Honorable Mention for their respective paintings.  A huge “THANK YOU” is extended to….M. J. Albacete, our juror for the event … musician, Lou Begue…Minerva Community Theater, sponsor of Friday’s reception…our prize money sponsors…and all who came out for the event and reception!  Once again MSAS has been overwhelmed with the display of support for the arts in Minerva!
