Lisa and Bruce Curry were on the hunt for the “perfect piece.” And in the 10 years or so they’ve been coming to the Columbus Arts Pageant, they’ve under no circumstances discovered it.

But this year, they are hopeful.

“Just about every time we occur, we are like, ‘This is going to be the working day, we feel it,'” claimed Lisa Curry, 56, of Dublin.

She stated they’re hopeful mainly because of the “large selection” of artists they’d found so much all through their check out to the competition Saturday morning. 

That’s for the reason that just after two years of canceling the arts festival thanks to COVID-19, suppliers from around Ohio and throughout the place swarmed the Scioto Mile this weekend, showcasing their ceramics, paintings and other kinds of visual arts.

Coming from afar

The arts pageant saw artists from several states, from Texas and Alabama, to California and Arizona.

Cheryl and Mike Rock, of Boardman, Ohio, peruse the mixed metals artwork of Steven Meadows during the Columbus Arts Festival on Saturday.

Chris Goodenbury arrived to Columbus from Rochester, New York, and established up a booth selling and showcasing his extensive-angle shots of abandoned structures, mainly churches.

Goodenbury, a 1st-timer at the arts pageant, mentioned he listened to about it through a pal who was earlier a seller. He applied and obtained waitlisted but ended up obtaining a place.

“(My buddy) says it’s a single of the finest reveals in the place to do, so I considered why not give it a shot?” Goodenbury mentioned.
