Folk Art Festival - Huntersville, NC

I work in a shopping center....very dangerous for a shopaholic like me...but getting to the point....

There is a Folk Art Festival, sponsored by Maddi's Gallery (who sells my jewelry), going on at Birkdale Village in Huntersville, NC. Since I work in that shopping center, I took a quick trip over to see what was going on. I met a bunch of very talented, and very nice, artists. Since I'm an artist myself, I thought I'd highlight some of my favorites, along with their contact information in case any of you shopaholics out there see something you want to here we go!

Kimberly Dawn
Gorgeous and unique paintings with some mixed media

Check her out at the arts festival at the House of Blues in North Myrtle Beach, SC June 23-25th, 2006!
