Late the night before the show friends, collectors (soon to be friends) and Halloween art enthusiasts gathered. Some folks pack their bags and hopped on a plane and some left early with many days of driving ahead to reach Chelsea, MI in time for Ghoultide Gathering. This is collective dedication my friends, at it's finest. The patrons were eager to see what the artists brought and they were careful in plotting a course to their favorite artists.
Deep within the inner sanctum of the barn at Chelsea fairgrounds a magic spell was taking hold. The room of wood, cement and metal was filling up with one of a kind Halloween art. Sculpture, paintings, pottery, dolls, fiber arts and fine folk art was being carted in with care and set up. We carried in our booth set up, as did all of the other artists, and began to assemble something that resembled magic. Each of the artists participating in the show have a personal responsibility to create something really special for the patrons. We really take it to heart. :)
Willow is a Ghoultide baby! She was so good during the rigorous 6 hour set up!
This was last year.... What a difference a year makes!
My Prim Pumpkin theme this year was "Prim Pumpkin Woods" I wanted to create the feel of an enchanted forest on Halloween night. The pumpkins and creature folk were all giddy with delight as the pumpkin hour approached.
My pumpkin husband loved my vision of an enchanted forest (little did he know the sheer magnitude of glitter this would entail) he helped me so much to bring my vision to life!
I think they are they perfect blend of shabby vintage Halloween! I am really pleased with them and my collectors really took to them! You will see them back next year.
Below, I am going to share some of my work! enjoy :)
The show was nothing short of amazing! I thank each and every one of you who made the journey and fell in love with Prim Pumpkin!
