BR Art Fair Was Filled With Art, Music and Food
by Alan Hague
posted: Jun. 02, 2006

The 36th annual Broad Ripple Art Fair hit at just the right time - one week earlier it was cold and rainy, one week later it was in the 90's. The weather for the weekend of May 20/21 was incredible. It was warm in the sun, yet cool in the shade. The Gazette staff has so many great photos that we will not be able to get them all in this issue. We will continue the coverage in the next couple of Gazettes.
We rode our bikes up the Monon Trail and parked them in the free (donations appreciated) Pedal and Park lot. This service is sponsored by the Metropolitan Planning Organization. Hundreds of fair attendees used the bike corral, keeping all of those cars off of the streets.
In this issue, with the help of Bob Schmidt, I will show some of the fair activities. In the next issue I will focus on one of the artists.

K.P. Singh celebrated his 36th consecutive year at the Broad Ripple Art Fair. His first entry consisted of 6 pieces displayed on the deck overlooking the canal and every one sold. There is "a great amount of pride and a sense of stubbornness" in his persistence. K.P. feels he has grown with the art fair. His passion for preservation of great architecture comes from his belief that architecture "is about us and our journey." He commented that the "tapestry has a lot more color today; and we have nothing to fear." Our diversity "is something to celebrate and cherish."

Jennifer Goldman couldn't help but smile at the whimsical humor in Barry Kite's photo-collages. Barry gives us a strange anachronistic mixture of classic art and modern sensibilities. Whether it's "Napoleon, Retreating from the Morning Commute" or a table full of Mona Lisa's playing cards, there is something wonderful and slightly off-balance to his work. He told us that if one knows art history, many of the works are even funnier. You can take a walk on the wild side at www.aberrantart.com
