The Larkspur Party in Raleigh (normally the first weekend in June) is always a treat. I stopped by a couple of weeks prior to the show to chat with Frances Alvariño Norwood, the founder, and her daughter Holly Alvariño Donaldson about the garden and the art show. Lovely people – hope to see them again soon!
Happy two of my sisters were with me for the garden party! Brava! Loved the shuttle – highly recommend it! If you happened to have visited this year’s party and want to share your thoughts on the art / artists, please reply to this post or leave a comment, below.
I have just begun writing up my post of the party and a handful of artists that graciously allowed me to photograph their art and ask questions.Thank you again for sharing with me Justin Donaldson, John Pelosi, and Patsy Skinner. If I should ever have a garden, I have my eye on a Frances “Fish Wife” to share some space with my other garden spirits.
I enjoyed a brief chat with Lisa Oakley about her glass jewelry, ordered a custom ring from Betty McKim and stopped by to introduce my my sisters to Susan Dahlin (one of my early blog post interviews– LOVE MY ROOSTER PILLOW!!). I also reintroduced myself to Tim Turner, a potter whom I included in a report on ash glazes while I was studying for my AS in Professional Arts & Crafts in Clay and Metal Sculpture* at CCCC, .
In the next few days I will be tying up the post on these Enjoy this brief writeup on Three Larkspur Artists and share some of their work and insights with you. Ya’ll come back now!
