When we first started to gather artisans and artists to participate in our first event we thought- well, we'll through the idea up there and see if it sticks! And it did stick. We received an abundance of wonderful comments for the most part centered around the need to get more people into Washington County because it has so much to offer.
We also learned that there is a lot more organizing that needs to be done and it will take more than the three or four months we had to get artisan's and artist's signed up to give it a try.
There is no time for sitting back and feeling relieved that it has happened and that most people seemed to have enjoyed their visits to the sites. There's a lot of work to be done. A lot of suggestions to be mulled over and some to put into place. Are we up to the challenge? You bet! We are all committed to helping not only our own creative venture succeed but to help ALL the Washington County's Artisans and Artists find a way to promote their special craft. These people are extremely talented and they hugely deserve that talent to be seen and appreciated by as many people as possible.
On Thursday, August 16tth we are holding an organizational meeting to review how this first event went. It will be held at Whiting Studio, 105 Holmes Road in North Argyle NY at 7:00pm. Any artisan or artist who would like to meet with us and provide their suggestions or feedback is welcome to attend or you can send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
