I thought maybe since I attended the event I might share some photography from the weekend. The weather was perfect and another large crowd attended the event, many beautiful pieces of art were found all along the venue along with great food and live performers made the day great for the entire family.
The Chautauqua draws thousands of visitors from across the Midwest each year bringing with it an untold amount of revenue not only for the exhibitors but the local economy as well. It has also become somewhat of a family reunion for locals in the Madison Indiana area, many have moved on to other jobs, retirement and school but every September a large number of our former residents seem to make their way back to their home to take in the beautiful display of Art and a chance to catch up with family and friends !!
So if you get a chance late next September try stopping by for a visit or a reunion and also take in the beautiful Art that graces the tree lined streets of Madison Indiana’s Chautauqua of the Arts. The dates for next year are September 28 & 29.
The Madison Chautauqua features artwork that is handmade and individually designed by the artist. Come and see the beautiful paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, weaving, folk art, jewelry, wood, baskets, clay, glass, paper, leather and wearable art!
You will also find a wonderful array of ethnic foods that line the waterfront along with music and other performance artists.
You can also stroll the tree lines streets to visit and view the beautiful Architecture that makes Madison one of the most celebrated National Historic sites.
And while you are in town you can also stop by my studio and view some of my work at 201 West Main Street, is that a plug or what !!
Seriously the weather looks to be great and the town definitely puts on a show it is really worth the drive if you are close..Hope to see you here !!
The weekend of September 26-27 is the big weekend for our community, the 39th annual Madison Chautauqua of the Arts, will be held in the Historic downtown district in Madison Indiana. There will be over 270 artists displaying their fine work all around the J.F.D. Lanier Mansion also there will be food courts, musicians and street entertainers in attendance as well.
