Nicole Pisaniello, Marcel LorAnge, Renee Biertempfel & Linda Varos met up at the Western Pennsylvania Fairie Festival. None of the group had met previously though both Biertempfel and Varos hail from Pennsylvania, Pisaniello came from Virginia and LorAnge from Quebec, Canada.Â While Nicole, LorAnge and Renee sold their prints and signed autographs for the public Linda worked behind the scenes coordinating this first annual event.
Varos said, “It was a joy to finally meet other Fairies World Artists in person. We have such a common bond.Â Some of us have emailed each other for a long time but not yet met. To finally come together was like meeting up with old friends.Â We hope to do this again at next year’s festival, and in fact expand the circle of those attending artists into a sort of annual Fairies World Books artists reunion”.Â
The 2007 Western Pennsylvania Fairie Festival is scheduled for June 9th & 10th,at Coopers Lake, Slippery Rock, Pa.
