Awards at the 2008 St. George Art Festival

St. George Art Festival 2008 Roland Lee Booth

My son Jon helped me set up our display at the St. George Art Festival on Thursday night. I've been exhibiting in this show for over 20 years, and it is definitely one of the most artist-friendly shows anywhere. They provide hot breakfast for the artists and bring water and snacks to each booth several times a day. Over 100 artists come from all over the U.S. to participate and many artists are turned away each year. This year the weather was the best ever, with warm temperatures and no winds, so the crowds turned out in droves.


I received a 2nd place award in the landscape competition and also received a purchase award from the City of St. George.
