The ArtFest is coming to town…November 5-7

The Washington-Wilkes Arts Foundation has scheduled its Annual Fall ArtFest for November 5-7.  This is a great event for the whole family as there are artists demonstrating their work, art to purchase, and fun activities for the kids.  Mike and I have a number of pieces of art in our home that we purchased at previous ArtFest’s that are very meaningful to us since we had a chance to meet and get to know the artists.
This year’s featured artist is Pear Fryar, a world renowned topiary designer.  He is the subject of the documentary movie, “A Man Named Pearl” that will be shown on Friday night and there will be a chance to meet Pearl Fryar after the movie.  I went to his website,, and was absolutely blown away by some of his work.  I am so looking forward to meeting him and seeing his work in person. 
The schedule for the ArtFest is:
Friday —
Movie:  “A Man Named Pearl”
Meet & Greet artist after movie

Saturday —
Art  Exhibits on the Square
Children’s Art
Topiary by Pearl
Member Reception (evening)

Sunday —
Art Exhibits

The exact times of the events have not been finalized, but will be posted to the WWAF website,

Below are some pictures that I took at a prior ArtFest.  Hope to see you there!
