Commentary by Amy Pauszek
The Broad Ripple Art Fair is ranked as one of the top art fairs and showcases one-of-a-kind art, live music, family entertainment and more. Where’s Amy hit the art fair recently, discovering talented artists from all over the nation and had a ball meeting the new and old artists. It was a pleasure meeting local artists Lee Ellis of Fishers and Carol Bell of Noblesville/Carmel. They both have strong community ties making art from their hearts. I confess, I could not leave without an original Ellis handcrafted wooden bowl and a nifty Carol Bell ceramic teapot. It is always a treat to run into the energetic Monica Zunino Mel of Carmel and author, commentator and artist K.P. Singh who has been a fixture at the art fair for 46 years. I loved watching a hand blown glass demonstration inside the Marilyn K. Glick School of Art, which serves as the center’s on-site educational facility and cooled off at the Frank M. Basile Auditorium. An ice-cold Sun King Beer paired with a juicy Carmel Punch Burger for lunch topped off the day. If you missed the Broad Ripple Art Fair this year, you better put it on your schedule for 2017 and Where’s Amy will see you there. Want to learn more about art and take classes?
