Before sharing more web sites of the art fest artists, for those of you who have never attended the Dry Creek Art Fest (this year on Saturday Sept. 10 and Sunday Sept 11, 2011), here are a few extras, especially aimed at the creativity portion of your brain. As stated before, the Art Fest is located on Gary and Karen Sands’ farm in Hiawatha, Iowa. Karen Sands is a talented artist, working primarily in 2-D and pottery. Her husband Gary is a genius in creating phenomenal wooden renovations of their two-story historic barn.

The barnyard, seen across from the barn, is an ambiance of rustic beauty and calm.
there are many flower boxes to satisfy a gardener’s palate for beauty,
because Karen has tucked in many whimsical planters
Its gentle cascading droplets send rhythmic tones in the breezes.
allowing the viewer to rendezvous with history.
Perhaps a painting would be the result of such a creative spark.
All this beauty is beckoning the visitors to the Dry Creek Art Fest.
And this is just the OUTSIDE! Wait until you see what is INSIDE the barn!
What a great art venue!
