Lexington’s 2012 Woodland Art Fair dawned to some of the prettiest weather the Fair has enjoyed in decades.
Artist Rod Lindauer manned his own booth, despite his recent encounter with a table saw. His thumb was “lacerated to the bone and the index finger severed through the bone at the first joint from the tip.” Stopping by his booth for a chat and check in, he says the injury was shocking — he was completely focused on the piece at hand when it happened (“not wool gathering”) and he’d gone most of his art career without much more than a scratch, despite the proximity to power tools his work requires.
Lindauer is at Booth 69, near the softball field. Look for the bourbon barrel chairs, bourbon barrel side tables, a large scale fountain, and extraordinary stainless steel bench. As he reminds customers, “these fingers aren’t gonna replace themselves!”
Lexington artist Bill Glasscock was also on hand (though not at a booth), showing off a few of the cells from his current animation project on Kickstarter, Just Another Planet With Trees, before departing the Fair for a family reunion.
Plan about two hours to circle through, but we’ve identified a few more highlights (in addition to Lindauer). Kent Ambler’s Woodcuts are at Booth 7. For 2D mixed media, check out Mark Traughber right next door at Booth 8. For pet-loving pop art fun, stop by Yvonne Miller’s whimsical Booth 144.
Woodland Art Fair 2012 continues Sunday August 19.
