We just returned from a delightful trip to the Escalante Art Festival. Who, in a million years, would have ever thought we would watch belly dancers in Escalante??
Sprinklers left on all night forming ice sculptures.
It was fun and interesting. We sold enough to more than pay for the trip and looked at a lot of real estate. Toured a few art galleries and gift shops. Saw a great presentation by an Arizona professor on Escalante photography by Dorothea Lang. She was one of Everett Ruess' mentors and married to Maynard Dixon the artist. We also enjoyed a boy scout pancake breakfast, dining at the local cowboy hang out and a buffalo dutch oven dinner at the Pine Creek trailhead. I got a request to carry my jewelry in a Panguitch gallery and got several more contacts, all impressed with my displays and unique jewelry. I was mildly surprised at what sold and who bought it. Most of my customers were from out of state including Florida and Germany. I hope to go back next year, maybe with Cowboy Bob and some paintings.
