More than 60 local artists to be featured at The Big Easel Saturday
“The whole setup is pretty with the white tents and the music and the children and the families and people are just walking around, enjoying and talking and looking at beautiful art,” says Putnam.
She said the event is important for artists who have had fewer opportunities to show their work in person this year due to the pandemic.
“I do sell my art online and I’m grateful that I have that ability, however seeing art in person is everything,” she said. “I’m not speaking for all artists, but my art, I feel like it never translates well digitally, but when people get to experience it in person, they get to see it in person, it’s special to just watch people connect.”
