Scenes | Doylestown Art Days

Thursday, June 12, 2014





Doylestown, a local town in Bucks County, hosted their first annual "art days" to celebrate arts and culture in the community.  From Thursday through Sunday, over 80 vendors paired with local artists to display art, host demonstrations, and connect with the community.  I had promoted the event via social media for my internship (which is located in Doylestown) and was interested to see how the event would come to life.  

On Sunday, my mom and I decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and check it out.  I expected a festival-type experience with live music and artists with easels set up all around town.  Instead, it was more subdued, with a few artists having demos for small groups of people, and humble displays of art set up in stores.  There was one girl outside painting a portrait of a dog who I talked with for a bit.  I found out that she is a current student at the art school I graduated from, which is always nice to discover since it is a relatively small and selective school. 

Regardless of the event, my mom and I enjoyed walking around the beautiful little town and popping in and out of stores.  I also took the opportunity to take a few photographs of the picturesque location as well as some of Steve Tobin's sculptures around the museum's grounds.  It was a lovely afternoon and the perfect opportunity to unwind and relax after all of my hard work on Saturday.

  1. It sounds like a fun day! We went to an art festival last weekend too; although, ours was more like the one you had in mind with live music playing and artists in tents selling their wares. I love the movement of those sculptures! They really tell a story, and it would be easy to look at them and see different things than the other people with you - like Rorschach tests or clouds.

  2. That sounds so lovely. I love Doylestown! Sad I missed out. I could use some art in my life lately, this has inspired me to at least go check out the Philly art museum soon!

  3. It is a shame that the arts festival was so small. Sometimes it takes a few years before things really pick up. I love all the pictures. It looks like a beautiful day!
