Saro Cider in Lincoln hosts small business art fair

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Guests of Saro Cider on the edge of downtown Lincoln got to partake in different types of crafts from art to cider Saturday.

Walking into the brewery guests were greeted by local artists that filled out the entire venue.

Each artist brought their own unique works that ranged in form from alcohol paints to children’s book covers.

Kinzee Hillis, one of the artists from the fair, unveiled her newest work, a 1958 Lincraft Camper renovated to be a mobile art gallery.

Hillis said she converted the camper into a gallery to collaborate with others and show her work across the state.

“For myself, it’s good to get inspiration from other people and see different things, to see how different minds work,” Hillis said.

Many of the artists present Saturday took the time to visit their fellow collaborators to see the works they created. Some even took the time to build relationships for future collaborations.

“Being able to connect with different artists and get them in one spot you are able to talk and maybe even find these similarities,” Hillis said.

The local artist that participated in today’s events were:

  • Amy Irons
  • Art of Lee Bokma
  • Brian Barganier
  • Diane Mi
  • Ham Clancy
  • Hebkid Art
  • Kinzee Hillis
  • Jenna Brisco
  • Joyfuls Cigar art
  • Karissa Bettendorf
  • Scott McDonald
  • Tatting by Liz
