It’s hump day and you know what that means … I’m thinking about what I want to do this weekend (April 27, 28 & 29, 2018). There are so many fun art activities on the horizon, it’s a good thing my lawn’s still frozen. No guilt.
First up, right here in Hutchinson, there’s a new event called Minted Patina Market, a thrifty show featuring upcyclers, local creators, and some fun food and beverage options. It’s going to be at the McLeod County Fairgrounds on Friday, April 27th from 10am to 6pm and Saturday, April 27th from 9am to 3pm. It’s free to get in, unless you want to go early before the crowds which you can do for $15; parking is also free.
If you’re coming to Hutchinson for this fun event, stop by the Clay Coyote on your way to or fro… we’re located just 4 ½ miles north of Hutch on Highway 15 (only a 15 minute drive from the Fairgrounds).
The Gallery is full of new pottery, handcrafted jewelry, blown glass, metal sculptures, woven fiber, carved wood, and more. We have the perfect shower and wedding gifts. Remember, mom loves pottery (flowers wilt).
While you’re out and about check out Prairie Haven’s occasional sale (also just north of Hutchinson). Jane and her crew have some beautiful home furnishings. I’ve got a few pf her gorgeous end tables, pillows, rocking chairs, and benches in my home. And her husband makes wine barrel art including lamps, tables, and wall hangings.
Also, this weekend is the St. Paul Art Crawl. Many of our favorite Twin Cities Artists will have their wears on display at galleries around town. Some of the past MN Pottery Festival potters will be hosting open houses … stop by Caufield Clayworks or Front Ave Pottery & Tile to name a few.
We’re going to try to get to all of these events. And we’re planning dinner at Alma Cafe (recently rated as one of the 50 best new restaurants in the USA by Bon Appétit).
Whew, that’s a pretty fun weekend!
