Views from the Arts Festival

Just a couple of images, things I saw from a slightly different angle during last weekend’s Columbus Arts Festival.

Columbus Arts Festival 2022

The Columbus Arts Festival is back in person on the Columbus riverfront! I love this festival, so that’s good news for me. In addition I’ll be joining several other authors on the Cultural Arts stage at the festival to read from our work. If you’re in the area for this wonderful arts festival, hope you can join us from 3-4 pm on June 11.

Here’s a link to the arts festival website with a lot of information on artists, performances, etc: https://www.columbusartsfestival.org

Hoping for good weather for the weekend!

Columbus Arts Festival Canceled

Hello, all —

It’s not really a surprise, of course, as the United States and the world continue to fight the Covid-19 pandemic, but I’m still sad to share that the Greater Columbus Arts Council has had to cancel the 2020 Columbus Arts Festival. Here’s a link to their statement.

This is my favorite festival, and one I’ve been attending since it was a smattering of tents on the Ohio Statehouse lawn many years ago. I had the pleasure of reading at the festival last year at the Word Is Art tent. I’ll look forward to applying next year and hopefully being able to repeat that wonderful experience.

I hope you are staying safe and healthy, and staying home as much as possible during these trying times.

For those who have time to read — some of us I’m sure — my publisher is putting several books on sale for 99 cents. Some of these are the first book in a series or set, and my first novel, Black Tide, is included. Black Tide is Book One of the Color Mage set. Here’s a link to Hydra’s post showing all of the sale books. 

Columbus Arts Festival

It’s almost June, and that means the Columbus Arts Festival is not far away. In addition to the many visual artists’ tents lining the streets, there is a “Word Is Art” tent where authors and poets read from their work. I’m happy to say that this year I’ll be on the schedule!

I’ll be doing a short reading (probably 10 minutes) from my upcoming new stand-alone fantasy novel, Taylenor. The time slot is from 11-12 on Sunday, June 9 — but the tent is active all weekend, and you can check out many other creatives reading from their stories or poetry.

Here’s a link to the arts festival website, with lots of visitor information, maps, etc. If you love art, and if you’re in the area, this is an event worth attending!

Also, this deer will be there (photo from 2017).
