The Lyndon House Arts Center

This weekend the Lyndon House Arts Center in downtown Athens, GA had its first annual Lickskillet Art Market. This contemporary art center building with lovely architecture and lush lawns was built off the back of the lovely antebellum home, the Ware-Lyndon House. I'll have to get a photo of the house for y'all.

For you northern folks who read my blog, "antebellum" refers to pre-Civil War era in the Southern states. I had to look up the meaning when we moved to lovely Athens because we have quite a few antebellum homes in town.

The art market ran all day Saturday with 39 art vendors (inside and outside), art demonstrations in the classrooms, children's activities in the children's classroom, music and refreshments and snacks for purchase. We were blessed with perfect weather and enthusiastic vendors and visitors.

This was the indoor setup with 16 vendors.

Outdoor setup...pretty chilly before the sun came over the building.

We were quite busy as the day went on, so there was no time for more photos...

Here's my DH Bill (dear husband, not designated hitter) manning the table where his rust dyed fabric art was moving like hotcakes.

A good time was had by all. Let's do it again next year!
