8.) Worthington Arts Festival Review – June 16, 2018

It was a beautiful day to head to the Peggy R. McConnell Arts Center

…for the annual Worthington Arts Festival.

Artists were lined up in rows along the lawn…

…displaying metallic (William Colburn) and glass flowers …

…clothing for the young and old(er) (Dyetology on right)…

…jewelry (Antoni Kozlowski/Martha Ponn)…

…handbags (Varu)…

…and oven mitts too (Mo and Me Designs).

There were colorful giclée prints (Margaret Anne Campbell Kohler)…

…wearable and framed art (Tree of Life)…

…fascinating sculptures (Robert Porreca)…

…inventive lamps from recycled parts (Lamps from the Attic)…

…playful functional art and jewelry (The Art Farm)…

…magical garden pottery (Jaime Iliff)…

…and plush little critters (Little Critter Plush).

It was shortly after 9 when I arrived…

…so, although it was a bit early for the biergarten…

…it was the perfect time for a “kream puff” (A Cut Above) or bagel (Short North Bagel Deli)…

…perhaps with some lemonade to wash it down.

And while there was a children’s activity area…

…the only entertainment I noticed at this festival was some wheel-spinning at the Old Worthington Partnership booth.

Some music would have definitely been nice.
