Piersol said that a lot of people came to the 47th year of the event because it was warm and there were many different kinds of art, food, as well as drinks for sale. “We also have a number of artists who came from other states,” she said.

Even Though It’s Been Going Upon For 47 Years, It’s Still A Well Liked Event:

“I talked to someone from Massachusetts earlier today. They’re coming here because they’ve heard regarding the Woodland Art Fair. Even though it’s been going upon for 47 years, it’s still a well-liked event. A well-liked weekend.”

The Woodland Art Fair will be Sara and Brian Turner’s 10th time going. For their business, Cricket Press, they make banners and do graphic design. This week, people are getting ready for a pair of the busiest times of the year.

“It’s really nice to talk to people and show off new projects to see how they react to it,” Brian said. “I would say that a lot of my own pieces are about the landscapes of the area,” said Sara.
