Re-capping the Main Street Art Festival

Posted by on April 29, 2015

The weekend of April 9-12, 2015, was the Main Street Art Festival in downtown Fort Worth.IMG_7980 This is an annual event, where artists of all types can display & sell their work.IMG_7994IMG_7983 Because there’s no admission charge (the vendors just set up on various sections of the street, which are blocked to oncoming traffic), a ton of people usually attend this event each year.IMG_7969IMG_7984 Of course, this makes for an EXCELLENT opportunity to draw caricatures!!IMG_7961IMG_7981 A total of 7 artists (myself included) pooled together their resources, materials, and funding (for the Festival’s entry fee), as we covered 2 separate locations over 4 days. The first day was, by far, the slowest (it was a Thursday, and kids didn’t get out of school till more than halfway through the work day). Still, we managed to make the most of it.IMG_8003IMG_7989IMG_7986IMG_7990 Thursday was ALSO the day when OUT OF NOWHERE, we endured a brief—but strong—thunderstorm!!IMG_7995 Dan, Amy, & I were literally holding down the fort, trying to keep our paper and electrical equipment from getting pounded by the rain that managed to blow its way into our small-but-sturdy little tent!IMG_7996 After about 45 minutes, the the weather returned to normal, and patrons roamed the streets once again, well into the evening.IMG_7998 Fortunately—and miraculously—Mother Nature proved to be VERY cooperative for the entire remainder of the weekend, and all of us enjoyed what turned out to be a profitable venture. Yaaaaaaaaayyy!!!IMG_7971IMG_8009IMG_8010IMG_8012
