First Saturday Indie Market #5

The days are getting hotter, and the Indie Market is settling into its own groove. We're seeing regulars on both sides of the sidewalk, it's doing good, but could use new faces and more artists.

These two smiling beauties were manning the Zen Glass table. Note all the hypnotically beautiful glass items. If you want something bigger, make the trip to the Warehouse Arts District and the Zen Glass Factory showroom at [Link]

Laura Spencer's work shines in any company. I've run across it at the "Sitting Pretty" show at The Pier, the Leave a Message show @ the Morean, and where this painting was headed at: The Crochet Coral Reef installation @ Florida Craftsmen Gallery -- and that was all in one week.

Above is Michael J. Matthews standing next to one of his works, the first after an idle period. For me, it was visual portal, a narrative about the passage of time, cyclical time. He can be reached at A personal note of congratulations to Michael for his re-entry.

Looking like a bunch of azulejos, Greg Francis' lyrical iPhone photographs of local scenes and signs, some posing as symbols as well, are beautiful and affordable. See more here: [Link]

The elephants are marching at James Oleson Gallery. They will go to selected artists to be painted and displayed during the RNC convention about 2.5 months from now.

This band played to a small crowd in front of Rosie's Upcycle Boutique.

I ran into local legend, poet and Indie Market bookseller John Rosa (on the right) listening to the above band.

Congratulations to all the artists, vendors and performers for being assets to the community and for putting together a good market, and to Rosie Williams for organizing the event and keeping it going.
