You can see the Bethesda Fantastic Arts Festival 2022 artists right here.

You know what is coming upcoming – my awards for top artists in the exhibit.  As a excellent juror, I can use my expert eye from the thumbnails and web page visits to award the Campello awards.

For the painters I liked  Zhiyi Li (from Enfield, CT) in Booth #66, and Thomas Williams (from Chicago, IL) in Booth #78.  

All a few printmakers in the display are fantastic — I’ve written a whole lot about Joseph Craig English from Washington Grove, MD (Booth #84) – in this clearly show John Pernell and Michael Nemnich are also rather good.

For Mixed Media, my best decide on was Sandra Sedmak Engel, whose sensual do the job is a satisfaction equally to the eye and the eros that outside displays ordinarily try out to eradicate.

There are a whole lot of gifted photographers in the exhibit. See them all here. James Richmond from Titusville, Florida (Booth #76) went to Cuba and has the mandatory pics of aged 1950s vehicles in Havana, as I recognize that the Cuban dictatorship will not let visitors (and photographers specifically) to depart from the jailed island except evidence is offered at the airport that photos of the classic autos have been taken.  

Pet peeve aside, Richmond has an extraordinary eye for capturing the grace that is human sort, all the way from Portuguese card players in Outdated Europe to beautiful indigenous females in Panama, to Cuban farmers in the brutalized Castro Brothers’ Personnel Paradise.

It is a great photograph, capturing the essence of the Cuban guajiro, his ancient Basque bloodlines nonetheless really cleansing jogging by means of his veins as evidenced by the telltale ear lobe, a extensive smile for the American vacationer on his skinny lips, and a hand-rolled Habano in his mouth, the envy of each individual smoker millionaire all-around the earth.

In the category of sculpture, Tanya Tyree caught my awareness as her sculptures struggle between talented performance and a bit of whimsy. What is very clear is a straight and unique eyesight becoming shipped by the (I suspect) pretty solid and qualified arms of this artist.

And the Campello decide on for Best in Demonstrate?

It goes to painter Cassie Taggart from Rehoboth, DE in Booth #51.

Although any person can instantly see that Taggart’s work take a look at surrealism, what she has brilliantly carried out is to produce a new 21st century version of surrealism, wherever her competent portray abilities marry it with fantasy, and the fantastical (which is distinctive) as well as a healthy dose of narrative storytelling.  

It is “otherworldly” artwork deeply anchored in knowledge which life concealed in our ancestral mind.  This is get the job done which when you obtain it and hold it in your residence, will dominate every thing else which you have hung on individuals partitions.

Go outdoors and see some artwork this weekend, talks to artists and artisans, eat some poor-for-you foodstuff and pay attention to some outdoor tunes.
