Even though there was a chill in the air, this year’s Sherburne Arts Festival on June 14 was a hit, with more than 40 artists and crafters showing and selling their work, George Deveny and the Bluenotes playing on stage, and attendees awed at Master Falconer Rick West’s birds of prey demonstration. An exhibit of nineteen paintings by local artist Charles Sussman (donated for the day by owners) was, as one attendee put it, “Just wonderful!”
The People’s Choice Favorite Artist $100 cash prize went to Jeramie Yacono for his sculptures. People’s Choice Favorite Crafter $100 cash prize went to K.C. Crafts for their handmade jewelry and crafts.
