O.C. Fringe Art Show

November 4, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free

A boutique art show and sale featuring a group of talented local artists and crafts people in a variety of mediums on a lovely wooded property in the country.

This show coincides with the first Saturday of the Orange County Open Studio Tour, so drop by if you’re planning to be out touring. Just follow the yellow signs!

We are on the “fringe” of the tour geographically (10 minutes Northwest of Downtown Hillsborough) and artistically- featuring art with an emphasis on self-taught, folk art, and the use of salvaged/ reclaimed materials.
(Some might say that some of the personalities involved are “fringey” too!

Artists:

~Mark Cool-ivegotahammer. Efland NC.
Folk/ outsider art made from reclaimed wood and found objects.

~Sam Ezell- Well known and venerated folk art painter from Hillsborough. Maybe best known for his large and colorful Dukes Mayonnaise jar paintings.

The place- Mark Cool’s workshop and tiny house collective, sits on three wooded acres with a creek.

Musical Lineup:

To summarize:
Original, unique, quality arts and crafts, live music, food and drink, a creek walk, & tiny houses= a fun time in the country!
