Art sometimes defies definition. Some art you like. Some you don’t.
Art displays form, beauty and unusual perception.
Art encompasses painting, pottery, sculpture, drawing, architecture, music, literature, jewelry, textiles, drama and dance.
Art is skill and craftsmanship.
The Red Wing Arts Association celebrates the nature of art this weekend, when many consider the region’s natural setting is the most beautiful. We’re talking, of course, about the Fall Festival of the Arts.
The downtown event runs Saturday and Sunday. This iconic event draws a crowd that could nearly equal the city’s population if the weather cooperates. Even if it doesn’t, you can still expect thousands of people to converge on Third and Bush streets to see and buy the wares of 90-plus arts and artisans, plus taste the wares of food vendors. There will be something for everyone again this year.
The show is going stronger than ever because quality rather than quantity remains central to its mission. The association does its members and its community proud.
Art. It comes from the human ability to make creative things … and to enjoy them.
