I've been doing this show for about 7 years now, and it is sponsored by the Wauwatosa Historical Society, and held on the beautiful grounds of an historic home surrounded by beautiful Victorian gardens. The Firefly Art Fair is the major fundraiser for the Wisconsin Historical Society , which raises funds to preserve the historic Kneeland Walker home.
The Firefly Art Fair has a wide variety of different mediums....paintings, photography, mixed media, jewelry, wood, and more! I snapped a few photos before the show started, of some of the various artwork, as shown below:
These blown glass pieces were absolutely exquisite!
Hand-dyed Silk Scarves and more....were for sale at this booth! Very colorful!
Very unique necklaces made from nuts by artist Gorden Decker
Here is another piece by wood artist, Gordon Decker. He said this piece was created from a "pod" from Africa. Great, unique candle holder.
I'm always a little sad when this show is over, as it means I have to wait another whole year to be back there again! It is always such fun to meet with artist friends, old customers, and to meet new ones. All in all a great weekend!
