New Carlisle, Indiana A two-day art show featuring more than 30 local artists and their work wrapped up in New Carlisle Sunday.
"Fine Art on the Farm" was an opportunity for local artisans to come together and share their wares with the public.
Everything from jewelry to wood crafts to glass blown bowls and other items were up for sale. Shoppers were also treated to live music and some farm stand treats.
Many artists talked about the importance of buying local.
“We have artists as far as Muskegan, Michigan, Kalamazoo all of the Michiana area Sturgis, Michigan and you'll notice that they're quality fine artists like pottery, jewelry, painting and fine photography,” explains Shireen Cline the Event Organizer of “Fine Art on the Farm.”
“I'm a big proponent of locally sourcing everything you can from food and it all kind of ties together for here with the “Fine Art on the Farm” artists can get together and share their wares and people that come from the area can locally source their art as well as their food,” says David Lee with Hot Shop Valpo.
For shoppers who didn't see exactly what they wanted, many of the artists also work on commission to create a craft to the buyer's liking.
