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.
