Rain cleared away just in time for art festivals

After a weird, rainy morning, the clouds disappeared and Saturday turned out to be a good first day for the Coconut Grove and St. Stephen's Art Festivals

The crowds weren't as large as usual, but today is expected to be a banner day, the weather is just perfect, after the cold front moved through last night, everyone is sure to be out in the jackets and furs.

New artists joined a lot of the regulars and there was a lot of art being sold.
Ingrid Hunter, Chris Loves and Linda Levy Goldberg enjoyed the day, I ran into them all over the place, from one end of the festival to the other.

Emerging Coconut Grove artist Rafael Gutierrez had his art set up at CocoWalk. The image to the right is clled "Navigating the Webb, it's also known as "Surfing the Webb."

Young and old came out, on bikes, skateboards, rollerblades and plain old feet. 

Both shows are open today from 10 am to 6 pm and the same Monday.

I loved this quirky work by Justine Ferreri, from Wilmington, NC. She has a booth set up at St. Stephen's.


My buddies from Fast Signs, who supply all the signage for the Coconut Grove Arts Festival, kept me well lubricated. I was drinking gin and club. From left, Roger Chai-onn , Alan Araya and Gregory Frye, were nice enough to wait on line for me and get me the drinks. 

I had posted a funny saying on Facebook earlier in the day: "I don't expect everything handed to me. Just set it down wherever," so it sort of was like that.
