SORT BY Relevancy
Hello and welcome to ART Talk, a series of conversations with the artists and master craftsman that make our world a more beautiful place. What inspires them to create? What does it take to make it in the world of handmade? Today I'm joined by artist, mother, small business owner, master craftsman, jeweler and nature lover Dina Varano. A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Dina has had a presence in the Connecticut River Valley for nearly thirty years. After spending several formative years living and studying in Italy, Dina settled into her studio, nestled deep in the woods surrounding her home and retail space in Chester, Connecticut. At her shop, that fittingly carries her name, Dina displays her stunning collection of jewelry and artwork as well as a mindfully curated collection of the works from other artists. She continues to draw inspiration from the natural beauty at her doorstep.
“I am inspired by nature. I study and explore through drawing in charcoal. My goal is to capture this essence and gesture in metal. I want to show the mark of my hand in each piece and achieve a rhythm of grace and movement. My parents are dancers, at an early age I learned the grace of rhythm and movement which has become a formative influence in my work. I want my jewelry to inspire and welcome play with the wearer.” ~Dina Varano

For the first 70+ shows of the Mandala Art Meditations, I pick a different card from the Tarot as the basis of our meditation.
The Chariot: Tenacity
THE SHOW FORMAT
If you want to participate in the meditation and create a mandala, prior to the show
set up a quiet space for the meditation and to do create the mandala
have a piece of paper ready and draw a circle on it
have your coloring/drawing tools ready (color pencils, crayons, pens, markers, etc.)
If you want to do the meditation only, then just set up a quiet space for yourself
AFTER THE MEDITATION
After the show, if you plan to create a mandala of your experience
allow yourself to be in the meditative state for a few moments, recapturing any images, thoughts, sensations, feelings, etc.
when you're ready, go to your paper and coloring tools and create the essence of what you experienced. let go of feeling like you have to draw or color it perfectly.
allow yourself to just go with the flow of it, the essence of it. when we allow ourselves to fully embrace our creative spirit, the insights come.
feel free to draw/color outside the circle, whatever feels appropriate.
when done, write down any insights in a journal or directly on the mandala
ArtFairCalendar.com has just finished its 2nd annual "America's Best Art Fairs" survey and we announce the winners. This is the only national online survey of the country's juried art fairs and craft shows, designed to reward the festivals that create opportunities connecting artists and communities to celebrate the arts.
We asked our mailing list of over 50,000 art fair patrons what was the best art fair in the country and had an amazing nationwide response. Nearly 90% of the respondents completed the lengthy 20 question survey and the answers were both expected and intriguing.
Not surprisingly: people love to attend art fairs and many travel long distances to do so. The overall conclusion is: Art is Alive and Well in America and attendance at the nation's shows is proof of that.
Listen to find out what the Top 50 shows in the country are as voted on by the people who attend them and collect art. Find out which they have chosen as the best regional fairs, best urban fair, best small market show and the best cities for art fairs.
We'll share the survey answers on:
what makes a show "Best"
why people say they attend an art fair
how art fair goers find out about shows to attend
why they don't attend shows they used to love
how far they travel to art fairs
their suggestions for show organizers
Laura Berarducci from the Ann Arbor Convention & Visitors Bureau also reports on the economic impact of the Ann Arbor Art Fairs in that community.
The mission of ArtFairCalendar.com is to promote the unique American tradition of art fairs by showcasing the events where art collectors find hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind fine work for sale and encourage the interaction of client and creator.
