Art Festival in Idaho Falls (July 23, 2022)
Helen and I drove up to Idaho Falls in the morning to check out their art festival. I had driven by it a couple of years ago and thought I knew where they’d be setting up. I saw the tents along the river and so we found parking. Oops, apparently the Farmers Market has expanded and they now block the road for that event. There were crafts people and artists at this market so we walked through it then got back in the car and used our cell phones to find out that the festival was at the Snake River Landing which we eventually found. This festival had some amazing artists and I found it inspiring. Here are a few of my favorite artists:
Elise Wilding: http://www.elisewilding.com
Living Stones Creations:livingstonescreations.com
Opa Dutch Artist Paints: http://www.opadutchartist.com
We also took a walk by the river while waiting for our chosen restaurant (Snow Eagle Brewing & Grill ) to open.

I used to go to this every year. Most of the people I worked with had booths. Amazing artists. This year however sadly, Roy Reynolds would not be there. His early passing is a painful loss to all of us who know and love him and his Beloved Beautiful Wife Monnette! Such remarkable people and friends.I wish I were there too!
Be sure to see Roy’s contributions in metal. The Historic pieces giving meaning to the Cities more original name, “Eagle Rock” ! Then on the West Bank of the Snake River is another amazing metal piece; it is an Eagle Rock fountain! By Artist Alan Haroldson, who also did sculpting for the LDS Temple in Nauvoo! A young friend of mine who I had invited with his family to see these fabulous once -in-a-lifetime experience, his eyes wide spoke and said “Holy Cow” and didn’t even realize what he had expressed!
Roy really was a great artist. We hosted him in the library gallery a couple of times.
