Heartside at Arts in Ada! ~ 5/16/15

Generously sponsored by The Community, Heartside Art Gallery & Studio had a booth at this annual festival for the first time. Set-up endured a bit of a snafu but the ingenious and clever Alysha Lach got it done.
The crowd was a bit light at first, probably due to the iffy weather.
About 25 Heartside artists had their work well represented!
Along with the rotating musical groups, Ada Dance Academy always shows up with many tiny dancers in tutus and heavy makeup (one little guy doesn't belong in this photo :-) ).
Here are our first customers, both of whom picked out Heartside designed pins.
Our next customer had to check with Grandma about purchasing the Owl. She got her way.
The owls were popular!
But purses ruled the day ~ many were admired and some were purchased but everyone appreciated the creativity and use of up-cycled materials.
Many visitors finished their visit by walking down to the historic Ada covered bridge, which actually has no original parts and is a complete replica, but it's picturesque nonetheless :-).
Our booth was inspirational but by 3:45, the customers were gone and the other booths were packing up.
We were happy to introduce Heartside to those who did not know who we were and were especially happy to meet people who remembered us from ArtPrize! The Heartside space was efficiently packed up and is ready for the next show!
