So many places to see art during this annual one-day event, but so little time! Although Art BEAT couldn't visit all the venues lined up, we were able to capture a few scenes from that busy day. Here you go...
Versatile artist, Teresa Harbaugh, poses in her outdoor exhibit at Water Street Studios, 160 S. Water Street, Batavia. Teresa enjoys a wide range of art expression that includes -- alcohol inks, oil, watercolor, acrylic, mixed media, and her latest work -- resin and stones.
More Teresa Harbaugh...additionally, she LOVES elephants and has volunteered her time at an elephant nature preserve in Thailand!! Notice in the picture above that 10% of her sales benefit this non-profit preserve in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Learn more about Teresa at her website: www.artbyteresah.com
Continuing at Water Street Studios ... the ART OF TANGMO. Tangmo is an independent illustrator born in Thailand and moved to the U.S. when she was age 5. Her artwork blurs the lines between the familiar, eerie, and whimsical. As a digital artist she also licenses her work. Her shop and gallery can be found online at artoftangmo.com
Water Street...Photographer Rick Decorie from Cissna Park, IL poses outside his tent with his work taken with a Canon 80D. Taking photographs since his teen years, Rick is an experienced photographer, not to mention a former firefighter and EMT!!
