"The chief source of art is man's pleasure in his daily work, which expresses itself and is embodied in that art itself."
William Morris (1834-1896)

Roycroft Summer Festival 2011

Held in the parking lot at the Parkdale Elementary School in East Aurora while the Power Plant is being restored on the Roycroft Campus, this show was well attended on Sunday. Saturday we had some rain that kept the crowds at bay; however, we had the loyalists to save the day. Thank you.
The quality of the Roycroft Artisans is awesome and they are generous enough to share the fun with some others as well.

First, two of my favorite Roycrofters:

Mary Mateljan Philpott makes beautiful, ethereal tiles and vases.
Her website is http://www.verdanttileco.com/

You can see her work on FB as Verdant Tile Co.

Then there is Laura Wilder is a painter and printmaker working very much 
in the Arts & Crafts Style.

Laura's website is www.laurawilder.com

Her FB page is Laura Wilder Artwork

Next to us at the show and always popular are Lynne & Richie Bittner with Wildflower Graphics. You can catch them at www.wildflowergraphics.com as well as FaceBook.
