Tony DeLuca - At the Fantasy in the Forest Show

Tony DeLuca creates a unique booth for the Fantasy in the Forest show he is participating in on the 20th of July.   Created using small trees, burlap and cement this permanent booth gives the forest setting a flare not seen in most shows.  Once the ivy and moss establish themselves the booth will become more a part of the surrounding forest.  Tony describes it as DIY Smurf gets a little drunk and makes himself a home.

Jamie Brick's show, Fantasy in the Forest on July 20th & 21st.  Fantasy in the Forest has a new location this year close to its original location on Draper Lake, though this year and subsequent years the show will now become more accessible, hidden away in a 50 acre forest.  Guests will park, take a lovely walk along one of the paths through the forest until they reach the main show area.  Centered around an ancient pine tree 20 artists will be displaying their wares while a harpist plays and acrobats perform.  There will be live demonstrations by myself and a few other artists as well as gourmet food available.  In this new location Jamie is creating permanent fantasy buildings to house the artists and to create a show village worth seeing on its own. 

Fantasy in the Forest is located 20 minutes north of Kingston.
Google Fantasy in the Forest Kingston for more information.
