Appreciation for the arts in the city of South Jordan was obvious at their Art on the Towne event in May on Towne Center Drive.  With two rows of tents starting with paintings and beautiful photography, visitors could see and enjoy more than a hint of the skill of several artisans.

“People coming by to see my work has been good, and it’s a beautiful day,” said artist Liesl Cannon when asked about the festival’s traffic. She specializes in a large variety of paintings.

Each tent had the actual artist or artisan in action. They were eager to interact with the visitors and answer questions. They showed their skill in hand-crafted pottery, handmade beadwork and custom-designed clothing.

Each tent contained a feast for the eyes which intrigued guests to slow down and have their curiosity satisfied by the artists. It was more proof that a creative streak and love of the arts exists in the city of South Jordan.

It also contained live demonstrations and live music which enriched the event’s ambience. There was a good feeling in attending an activity with like-minded people. Young and old were invited and it was free of charge. λ
