Octagon Arts Festival
Last Sunday’s weather was just perfect for the 44th annual Octagon Art Festival in downtown Ames. More than 90 artists exhibiting painting, ceramics, glass, photography, textiles, metal, sculpture, jewelry, wood working and more lined Main Street. Adding to the festive atmosphere were musicians, food vendors, and art activities for the kids. The quality of the art was very good; I especially appreciated the variety of wonderful pottery at this year’s show.
