Buckman Art Show (At Home) 2021 ~ March 9-14

buckman2021a

Due to the pandemic, one of my favorite shows to participate in, the Buckman Art Show will be taking place virtually this year. I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since my last in person show. In early March 2020, we were just starting to take precautions against COVID and the show went on as scheduled. But attendance did seem diminished and there seemed to be a hesitancy among vendors and shoppers alike.

This year, instead of a 3-day event, there will be a week-long online fundraiser March 9-14 to celebrate the arts and artists at Buckman Elementary. A list of 2020 vendors and links to their shops, arranged by medium, will be available to shoppers.

I will be busy adding things to my Etsy shop in the coming week and I hope that you will take a look and also support other local artists!
