For those who were unable to attend this year’s Quick Draw & Art Festival, you’re in luck: I’ve compiled a virtual experience of it, from the approach walking down the road leading to Mattei’s Tavern, and of the auction and festival itself. I also included a few photos from last year’s event at the end. Enjoy! DSC08884 The artisan tents leading to the Quick Draw event surrounding Mattei’s Tavern. DSC08885 More artist tents surrounding Mattei’s Tavern. DSC08886 Ramona Clayton of Terramonary with her spread of colorful porcelain dinnerware. DSC08888 A few of the artists’ work stations during the hour-long art making session part of the Quick Draw event. DSC08893 My five paintings in the silent auction tent, (which unfortunately, cast a yellow light on all the art). _DSF9637a A photo taken at the opening reception. DSC08896 Between the tents were artworks shielded by netting. DSC08905 A buttery landscape by George Lockwood being presented at the Quick Draw auction. This and all pieces in the Quick Draw auction were completed in the span of a single hour! DSC08925 Peggy Brierton between two of her lovely landscape paintings in the silent auction.
