Victoria Fine Art Fair

It was a lovely day on Stieger Lake and Stieger Lake Lane at Bayfront Plaza in downtown Victoria on Saturday, August 12th.

The 1st Annual Victoria Fine Art Fair was open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Some of the featured art included original oil paintings, garden flags and scarves, handmade all-wheel-thrown pottery, polymer clay jewelry and textiles.

The art also included floral photography, note cards, magnets, fabric bags, 3D functional fine art, wood sculptures, handmade leather toys, costume pieces for children, alcohol ink paintings, matted and framed photograph prints.

Other art for sale included home décor items, unique and sophisticated clothing for the everyday woman, oil landscape and skyscape on canvas and linen, and atmospheric fired ceramics inspired by nature.
