Last night was First Friday at Strolling Village Artisans. A fun time was had by all. It was the first anniversary for the town of Ballston Spa First Friday celebrations. So many people were walking through town, including a very enchanting group of teenagers from Ballston Spa High School in costume to advertise the play they are in next week. If you had a card and had it stamped(or in our case stars)5 times you were eligible for a raffle.
Most importantly it was our second Meet the Artist night. The wonderful potter Jim Best made some beautiful vases and a covered bowl to die for. Jim's work is very lovely and very spiritual. If you are ever in the neighborhood stop in and see it you won't be disappointed. Many of the artists in the coop were there to spur Jim on and give him our support.
Also Judy Olson a wonderful photographer who has a studio in our building had her wonderful photography on display and Heather Hollywood, who is also a member of the coop, had her beautiful beads and jewelry on display.
A good time was had by all. If you are ever in the area drop in and see all the beautiful work done by all of the Strolling Village Artisans. We are a group of very talented individuals if I say so myself.
