OUR WORLD - Waterloo Artists in the Street


Click on logo to join other participants


It's like a new fashion more and more street expositions are taking place in Waterloo. This time it was in a certain Sint Gertrude Street. It was in a very old part of Waterloo, where I had never been since the 37 years I live here !



The St Gertrude street was very old  and narrow going up a hill. I wonder how people are getting there when it snows !



The houses were also old and very nice. The artists had displayed their paintings or sculptures in the gardens.



Fortunately the sun was shining in the afternoon



all kind of paintings and sculptures



along the street





This man showed how he worked with a chainsaw



Little clay figurines



and a book which I really liked



There was also handmade jewelry



and I met my ceramic teacher, who sold some of her work too



The International Rotary Club was also there



and some artists had baked delicious cakes.

A nice way to spend some time. You should show /sell your work there.
