What do you love about the fair? The thrilling rides? The fresh roasted ears of corn? The cute rabbits? The live music? The tractor pull or motocross races? One of my favorite things to see at the fair are the creative projects. I especially love nature photography. My favorite photo this year was an owl, which won First Place and Best of Show. (pictured above.) My favorite painting was of a Canada goose. Yes, I favor wild birds! The wood crafting projects were incredibly impressive: hand crafted musical instruments, clocks, a ship's wheel and bowls fashioned from exotic woods.
It was most refreshing to see that the lost arts aren't lost in this generation of young adults, in their twenties, carrying on the tradition of growing plants, preserving the harvest, raising livestock, and handcrafting beautiful, and functional items, along side the senior adults that have been participants through the years.
We share a sampling of artistic endeavors and gardening genius from young adults below. ~
