Clay County Fair photographs ŠJudy Hemphill
Artisans Road Trip artists continue to exhibit their work in a variety of venues. The 2012 Clay County Fair Museum will feature a sampling of photographs made by 2012 A.R.T. member Judy Hemphill of Spencer. She has been documenting "The World's Greatest" since a self-assignment in 1995. A collage of images from that edition of the fair launched Hemphill's free-lance photography career. Two of her submissions to the International Association of Fairs and Expositions have earned Best Agricultural Photograph awards. Last year her images placed in three categories of the IAFE competition.

Hemphill says, "I love the fair. I hope my images reflect the pride all involved take in doing their best to ensure the Clay County Fair is 'The World's Greatest.' " In keeping with this year's theme "Discover the Greatest," the public is invited to discover some of Hemphill's favorite fair photographs in the Fair Museum located under the Grandstand. The Museum and exhibit will be open Saturday, September 8, through Sunday, Sept. 16, during regular fair exhibit hours.

Yes the Clay County Fair is fast approaching, but then so is the 2012 Artisans Road Trip! Thank you for visiting the 2012 A.R.T. Blog and be sure and stop back for more!!!
