Another busy weekend of events in The Crown City. Making or viewing a listing or calendar of upcoming events is easy, but writing an article of the event, or, actually ATTENDING the event, that is the challenge for the media and the public.
So, Believe It or Not!, here’s a slice of what you may have missed from one event: The 3rd semi/annual Jackalope Artisan Fair, in Pasadena!
This would be my 1st. Jackalope has really been a challenge for your writer since, until this weekend, I had never attended. Having friends reminding me or attending the fair was a motivating factor. Thanks, Flower Pepper Gallery and artist Alicia Gorecki!
Jackalope is an indie artisan fair featuring over 100 local artisans in various fields: art, sure, but also clothing, food, jewelry, photography, plus workshops, and so on.
Okay, folks – Central Park, I’m Going In!
Cookies handcrafted especially for you by the Broadway Baker. The cookie I gave a taste test too was good.
Mike Matola will write Line By Line Posters for you or show you his works at your gallery. He’s got The Beatles are looking over his shoulder!

Alicia Gorecki, a very talented traditional & digital artist, is one reason I had to finally check out Jackalope! She does amazing work, especially of our Colorado Street Bridge, and she’s a Pasadenan!

The Chantry 1975 gang. Take a guess at what the business name means.
When I saw this Corgi on this doggy purse from Eco Pet Hand Bags I had to take a shot for a Corgi friend of mine!
United by Form made their latest appearance at Jackalope. Her display looked simple, clean, organized and effective. Attractive.
And last, but definitely not least, Banter & Bliss! When the mystery girl pictured (below a dark hat & dark sunglasses) screamed out my name, well, you better stop, turnaround, take notice and check this out! (I’m trying to get used to people calling out my name as I walk the Streets of Pasadena.) I gotta say I was impressed with the quality of her stuff.
Take a guess at who is the above little mystery girl from Pasadena!
This was a brief recap of what you missed at the Jackalope Artisan Fair this past weekend in Pasadena. But there was much more to this than what I could show you here. Visit it next time the fair comes to our town.
You say, “Darn, I missed the Jackalope Art Fair!” Have no fear, Pasadena is not the Best Town for The Arts for nuttin’! This week, beginning on Thursday and then following up on Saturday evening, you have at least 3 more opportunities to check out the artistic & creative in our city:
Thursday the wonderful Galerie Gabrie opens with a new exhibition of paintings from Charles Muench called “Inspired by Light”! On Saturday, the magical Flower Pepper Gallery presents us a Panda show called “Being a Panda.” Finally, if photography is more to your taste the Walt Girdner Photo Studio & Gallery opens a new exhibit called, “India: Ebb & Flow”. In my opinion, these are all to my tastes. Visit the galleries to see what appeals to you!
