Wonderfully Wazy Weekend

C and I enjoyed a rather wonderfully wazy weekend at the condo. It was hot and we hurried from one air conditioned venue to another. Our intent was to take in the Folk Art Show on Friday evening, but after we walked Barker in the Midtown heat, we collapsed in the air conditioning and reconnoitered. Why not go on Saturday morning? We had papers to read, gin to sample, and lots of Netflix to watch. So....thus ended Friday night!
Saturday morning dawned cooler (high 60s when I got up at 6:30 and dryer). We arrived at the Folk Art Show at about 11:00 and had a great time checking out all of the displays.

As you can see, this piece was painted by a fellow who calls himself "cornbread". Apparently he is quite well known in the folk art world (this was our first show, so we are real newbies), as he had crowds gathered 'round him, and his work was everywhere. I am quite partial to chickens, and so it was nice to view his work...but you can probably surmise from the two pieces that are side-by-side here, all of his work looks the same!

There were tons of chickens everywhere...and they were lots of fun for me!!! I was never quite sure if it was ok to snap fotos or not, so I took very few, and put my camera away as quickly as possible after taking a shot!

This piece was one of my favorites...and look, it's not chickens!!!! Isn't the color wonderful!!!

Here is one my my favorite real folk art exhibits...right in Midtown, Atlanta. We walk by it almost every day when we are staying at the condo! It is just a treasure trove...and has sooo much to see and enjoy. Let me see if blogger will let me post just one more picture of this wonderland....

Well, apparently NOT!!! ahhh, I move closer and closer to Typepad!!! Anyway, to round out our wonderfully wazy weekend, we took in "Prairie Home Companion" at Midtown Arts (and got to check out the progress of the Trader Jacks...which is progressing by leaps and bounds I am happy to report!). If you love Garrison Keillor and PHC like I do, go see is very entertaining, and you won't want it to end!

I am a big fan of PHC and really want to see it, but may have to wait for the dvd! Love the folk art pics.
