Despite cold, Art on the Square show shines brightly
● By Richard Gaw
By 7 a.m. on the morning of April 25, a village of tents sprang up one by one on Broad Street in Kennett Square. Intended to house the creative wares of the many artists and artisans there to take part in the fourth annual Art on the Square, the tents served more as protection from the April arctic blast that swept through the area. Advertised as an open air festival, all that could be felt was cold air.
As the morning gave way to afternoon, however, a wave of enthusiastic art lovers paraded up and down the festival grounds admiring – and purchasing – the works of professional artists who showcased booth after booth of painting, illustration, sculpture, glass, wood, photography, jewelry, pottery, fibers, mixed media, and furniture making.
Among the many exhibits on hand at the show were George Watson Pottery in Glen Mills; Sew Designed in Doylestown; EE Designs in Downingtown; Gold'en Touch Gifts in Oxford; Kimberly Eden Designs in Paoli; Golden Touch Gifts in Oxford; Thistle Hill Pottery in Landenberg; Steven L. Miller Photography in Garnet Valley; and Estelle Lukoff Jewelry in Landenberg.
The festival was sponsored and presented by the Kennett Area Restaurants and Merchants Association.
