2011 Art on the Avenue Favorite Finds

2011 Art on the Avenue Favorite Finds

Another year, another amazing Art on the Avenue. Despite rain and cold temps, the spirit of Del Ray prevailed. Thanks to Pat Miller and all the volunteers who make this annual event such an incredible success.

I actually took three trips to the festivities — first a preview during an early morning jog as the artists were setting up, then with my family in tow during the lunch time rain, and finally a solo mission to take some pics of my favorite finds when the rain took an afternoon break.

Although I didn’t capture everything, here’s a round-up of some of my favorite finds. You can find contact information for the artists on the Art on the Avenue website. For more photos, check out the 2011 Art on the Avenue flickr group.

  1. I bought a beautiful, hand loomed kitchen towel, a cute holiday treat platter, loaded up on soaps and candles and bought some groovy gloves from Jenae Michelle. She is at the Torpedo Factory, studio 226. If I was you, I would head over there and buy a pair. They are made from recycle sweaters and hand knitting, and really bring any outfit up a notch.

    • Wow — sounds like you did very well! I missed those gloves but I saw some nice mittens that I am kicking myself for not buying.

  2. Can you post who the art vendors are? I would love to check out some of these items online, granted they have a website, or look for the artists at upcoming shows. Thanks!

    • Let me see what I can do. I was out with my 2-year-old in a stroller so it was difficult to keep track of everything but I do remember a few of them.
