Meet two of the artists who will be at the Cherrywood Art Fair this weekend


Dave Lamplugh will be at Cherrywood for the first time. The graphic novel illustrator has designed cartoon characters on Franklin BBQ sauce bottles and T-shirts, and his latest works are a series of illustrations featuring animals as Japanese warriors, which he’ll sell for $30 each or three for $75. “It’s a trade show, and a lot of the people there are doing very sophisticated commercial art, like toys, cottage industry, arts and crafts,” he says. “They’re all about getting an audience that likes that kind of stuff to buy.”

Brian Johnson is a woodworker and founder of BDJ Craft Works. He has created large furniture pieces but shifted to making smaller home decor pieces in 2009. His latest series, including vases, trays and photo frames, is made with domestically harvested cherry walnut. “There’s always new stuff coming out,” he says. “I kinda always have new little designs in the back of my mind.” He’ll also have pieces at Blue Genie Art Bazaar and the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar, and he interviews different artists on his podcast, “Craftworks Dialogue.”

CORRECTION: Sophie Roach was originally listed as appearing at the Cherrywood Art Fair. She will not be present at this year's fair. Visit her website to see her work.
