For the first time this year, En Plein Air, the term for outdoor painting, the specialty of both the French impressionists and the artists that boarded at Miss Griswold’s home, will include Midsummer Craft at the Museum Shop.
Come meet the artists behind:
Billie Beads – dazzling, sparkly, exuberant, handmade jewelry and objets d’art (I find them irresistible)
Angie Falstrom – miniature watercolors, giclee prints and notecards
Kate Hines – pearl jewelry that manages to be both classic and hip
Nankeen – accessories made by the ancient “rescued” technique of blue nankeen
Here’s my schedule for En Plein Air:
10 am: Baking Demonstration
11 am to 1 pm: Booksigning
2 pm: Baking Demonstration
In between, I’ll be doing what everyone else is doing — shopping for great food and eating great food. My friends, Jonathan Rapp from River Tavern and Drew McLachlan from Feast in Deep River, the masterminds behind Dinners at the Farm, will be at The Flo Gris with their “chucktruck,” dishing out their wonderful right-from-the-market fare. They’ll also be making my Lemon Loaf Cake for you to taste at my demo — thank you, guys! — and using the cake to make a dessert of their own that will be available from the truck.
I can’t tell you how happy it would make me to meet you at the market! PLEASE, PLEASE, if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by, say “hi” and have a piece of cake.
