Kara's Minions are the cutest little animals! Kara Pettee will be joining Art on the River for her first year. She brings with her some awesome little animals to put on your shelves. She also has some very lovely beaded jewelry!
Kara stated in a note to the committee that, "I am a crafter in-progress with a love for the beauty of art. I have been creating things from clay for a couple years now, and love every moment of it. I deeply enjoy being able to bring an idea into the world with my own hands, such as something that already exists, or something from my own imagination. Far more satisfactory than drawing, clay can show the world something in full 3D that can last forever!
Kara creates all her sculptures with much love which is reflected in her trademark symbol on all her work . . . a heart. Stop by and say hi to Kara. She will be located in the West Quay parking lot near the stage.
