Post from Pacific Fine Arts Festivals

Shop handcrafted works from small businesses! Meet Nora Akino and see her printmaking and graphics at the Mammoth Lakes Open Air Arts and Crafts Fair on July 29, 30 & 31 from 10:00 am – 5:00pm. “Born in Japan to a family of artists, I lived as a child in Japan, India, Nepal, Mexico, Canada, and the Unites States. I have been creating art from a young age and studied drawing and painting in college with Nathan Oliveira, among others. My work arises from a feeling I often have when encountering a vista of exceptional beauty: a longing to touch what is far away and mysterious, that is perhaps universal. The images are evocations of place, refracted through my senses and cultural and personal affinities – in particular, the recognition of a boundless presence that permeates the natural world. Longing for the far away and mysterious is really a longing to learn and connect: human impulses that, for me, are the essence of the creative process.” ~ Nora Akino Visit Mammoth Lakes Open Air Arts and Crafts Fair, get to know the artists and learn the stories behind each piece they make.
