“Art in the Village” at Legacy Village, an arts festival in Lyndhurst, Ohio, brought gifted artisans and craftspersons this year. A few of my favorites included large colored metal garden art for walls or the ground, ceramic lamps with ceramic shades, hanging wind chimes using cut geodes and driftwood (The Stonecutter), large garden flowers out of vintage glassware, china cups, and plates with doorknob centers, incredible layered patterned wood boxes (Natural Renaissance), ceramic Tiki heads, and repurposed cell phones made into whimsical character sculptures (Paladin Workshop). I was ecstatic to find a freehand silhouette portrait artist doing this wonderful but dying art (Igor Nasibyan). If you haven’t been to an arts festival this summer, there may be still time to experience the unique work of many talented artists, possibly in your area.
