Retail Therapy at TACA

Today, I had an opportunity to do one of my favorite types of shoots that I do. My wife and I went to the TACA Craft Fair here in Nashville, TN. I enjoy walking among the booths, viewing the different crafts presented by the artists and making images, typically abstracts. I like to call such shooting “Retail Therapy”. I am spending time with my wife, I am shooting, and an image opportunities abound!  I try to ask the vendors if they would mind if I take an image, most don’t mind, a lot ask for me to send them a copy. Below are some of the images I captured at this year’s show…


The above display of pottery pieces was in the booth of Sandra, from In The Stix Studio, of Norris TN.  The two images below are of pottery pieces by Martin Paschall. Martin is a very interesting artist who was a high school band director for many years, retired, and took up pottery, a love he had since college. We purchased two pieces from Martin.



While browsing booths, we ran into an artist who is a daughter of a friend of my wife from years ago. She had been showing for the past two shows and had some beautiful pieces, one of which we purchased. Her name is Tara Underwood. Check out her work!



The following images were from other artists’ booths. They all had fabulous pieces, check out their TACA exhibitor pages:
