GumTree Festival, Tupelo MS

This weekend we went to the GumTree Festival in Tupelo, which was around the downtown square.

Joe Dumas (Yellow Dog) brought a bottle tree and more of his rock and iron furniture:

Roger Styers (Delta Ornamental Glass) has come up with this terrific sculpture that he calls a ‘cotton bottle tree’. He says that each of the cotton bolls is made from a single piece of glass:

Alexander Brown was there from Bentonia with his alligator table:

We had a good time – several other artists we know were there, including Lowry Wilson (Old South Images).

The boys met some dogs that were up for adoption, and we of course took pics of them in front of Tupelo Hardware, where Gladys bought Elvis his first guitar (if either of the boys ever want a guitar, we’re on our way to Tupelo…).

A couple of other artists I forgot to get pics of that were nice: Sarah Kaufman and Tracey Lewis.

*Lots* of really great festivals this weekend – I’ll post some of those later this week.
