Yesterday was a hot day in the sun, but a great day to see art at the Oasis Arts & Eats Fest in Downtown Jonesboro. I love it when I get to see people experiencing the Chrees for the first time, as well as those coming back to see my new work. I was very stressed for the weather but it ended up being a beautiful, sunny day!
I am so proud and overjoyed at the showing I had on Saturday at the Oasis Arts & Eats fest in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Not only did I have a great reception to my work, I got to see and actually HUG my friends for the first time in a long long time (all being fully vaccinated).
It was also my first showing with nothing but chair-tree pieces. I was truly shocked and amazed at the reactions. It left me clear that I am on the right track as an artist. I am looking forward to more art shows and festivals.
That’s right! I’m all vaccinated and to celebrate I will be at the 2021 Oasis Arts & Eats Festival in downtown Jonesoboro on May 1st.
