Art Fest, Fort Myers

The season for outdoor art festivals is here.  Art Fest in Fort Myers is a good one.


Michael Gard is a woven wire artist from San Francisco.


Sue is a hooker.  That is, she is a member of the Matlacha Hookers,
a service organization for women who volunteer at a variety of local events.


Debra Steidel is a Texan who makes fine art porcelain.


Marnie and Bill Winn are from Montana.  They make custom puppets 
from a photograph of your face.


And, Angelo Fico is a Wisconsin glass artist.
The show continues today, off Bay Street in Fort Myers.

What a great variety of skills and crafts in this art fair! Love Sue's moniker! Wish I knit or crochet so I could steal the label.

We're outdoors here too.
Call it WinterFest though.

The puppets are very good. And clever.

I'd have fun attending this event!

Fort Myers seems a very nice place, with interesting art and very peculiar... hookers!

You do have a lot of fun things to do down thataway! I like the puppets and I know some folks with faces of which I'd like to make puppets. :)

Wonderful images Jack!

A hooker. Right o.

I rather like the wire (that must be an awful lot of it) and I've always been partial to blown glass baubles... Cool set of portraits!

RedPat said...

Nice set of pics, Jack! I hope all the artists did well.

Kay said...

This does look like a good one. That is, I see a few things that scream "take me home." A hooker isn't one of them, however.

William Kendall said...

Excellent portraits, and I like their work!

Michelle said...

As a teacher, I think my students might be speechless if I showed up with a puppet of myself. Love it!!

Fascinated by those puppets - I can't imitate human likeness with simple pencil never mind in 3D puppet glory!

Randy said...

Cute looking Hooker.
