Painter Nicole Vanover’s 4-year-old son loves to help at his mother’s booth at art fairs, including the Black Swamp Arts Festival.
“My son really tries to help set up,” the artist said recently in a telephone interview. When it comes to sales though, she’d prefer he go with his father to the youth arts area.
“He tries to sell all my work for $1,” Vanover said.
That’s quite a bargain for the photorealistic acrylic paintings that won her the Dorothy Uber Bryan Painting Award at the 2012 Black Swamp Arts Festival. (The award has been retired in favor of a 2D award sponsored by the festival committee.)
Vanover, with husband and son in tow, will return to the festival with a booth in The Masters Gallery Sept. 7 and 8.
Her son, she said, is part of the reason she started working the art fair circuit last year.
