Here are some of the pictures that I took at the Minnesota State Fair, which I attended about a month ago. Click on any to enlarge. Enjoy!
First up are pictures of the beadwork in the Creative Activities building, where everything entered is accepted. These are a few of the pieces that caught my eye. The turtle is Doug Limòn, whom I’ve written about before, and met briefly this past summer.
Here’s Crop Art, made solely with natural colored seeds glued onto paper. There were actually 2 QR codes. I still haven’t checked what it links to!
Finally, Fine Arts. This is very, very hard to jury into. I don’t remember the statistics, but acceptance rate is quite low. There was an exhibit to the left of the entrance consisting of highlights of previous entrants, which are two of the pictures – the Judy Onofrio mosaic of a woman in a canoe, and the orange and purple textile from Nancy MacKenzie. The square pink and purple quilted piece is from Mimi Holmes. I believe I’ve written about these three artists before.
