The setting was storey-book perfect. So was the weather....75 degrees, sunny (after the morning clouds burned off) with calm winds.
One of the organizers told me this show has been ranked the 8th best in the country, and is moving up. I believe it.
There were 145 judged exhibitors there, and their stuff was absolutely top shelf.
This was carved from one block of wood. I had no desire (nor the money) to buy it, but still the talent and patience it took to create it just boggled my mind.
But of course, you know me....I'm always drawn to the oddball stuff.
And this one....ceramic figures rappelling down a wall....was the oddest and absolutely most creative/unique thing I saw. At $170 each I wanted them all. However my bank account just laughed at my spontaneity.
I was at first disappointed that there was only one food truck there (although there were lots of restaurants around the "square"), but then I realized it was my favorite Korean taco/kimchee fries vendor from last week, so all was well again.
We bought our food, then walked over to the "King and Queen" pub where we ordered a couple of brews with names I couldn't pronounce.
Then I heard the music from the stage a half block behind us. OMG! It was Jake and Elwood, The Blues Brothers.
I left K to relax while I went and enjoyed this surprisingly good act for a while.
One last look back. Kudos Southlake for a fantastic art show!
