Jennifer Perkins’ Shopping Guide to the Blue Genie Art Bazaar in Austin
If you live in Austin and have a love of handmade goods, then you have heard of the Blue Genie Art Bazaar. This year is extra special because it is the 10 year anniversary of the bazaar. My name is Jennifer Perkins of Naughty Secretary Club and I will be your host for today’s post about Blue Genie and let’s go ahead and get the fact that I am biased towards the show out of the way right up front.
Blue Genie is a juried show selecting only the best artists in Austin. Locals might recognize names like Chia, Darla Teagarden, Mark Joiner, Amy Barber, Moxie, Ornamental Things, Baby Bolt, Hot Pink Pistol and of course the Blue Genie guys themselves. You can’t take a driving tour through Austin without spotting a Rory Skagen mural or a large piece of sculpture that the guys did sitting atop a business. I happen to be the proud owner of one of their larger than life glitter covered popsicles.
