After a successful run at the 2014 edition of the ArtiGras Fine Arts Festival in Jupiter, taking home the blue ribbon for the Emerging Artists, we will be returning to the festival in 2015 for the event’s thirtieth running. More than 80,000 art lovers are expected to join the fun, perusing the tents of 300 artists exhibiting their work. Art in just about every medium will be on display and available for purchase, while an array of activities and entertainment is slated to give the place a fair like atmosphere.
This year, we will be stepping up our game, moving from the Emerging Artist coral, joining the main thoroughfare of artists along main street – booth #136, right along University Blvd. in the shadow of Roger Dean Stadium . The new location means more people moving through the tent, which means more people to show what the Makai Project woodshop is up to. And since last year, it has been loads. We’ll be debuting a plethora of new product at ArtiGras this February, so be sure to check us out. Here’s a primer of what’s to come:
For the handplanes, we’ll be introducing our newest model, the Flying Fish (left), alongside our versatile Fat Minnow model. There will also be plenty of accessories for those handplanes, from bags to display wracks, so check us out.
On the skateboard front, we will be rolling out with a bounty of longboards and kicktail cruisers, both from new presses, coming in four different shapes. The boards are pretty boss, with our classic double veneer styling, and veneers paired with graphics and art by Rainy Sun Design.
New this year, a few “for the home” fun with a Makai twist. For those who have a tab to settle, try our Brass Ring game in two fun designs: Surfboard and Tuna. The perfect addition to the home bar/den/patio, the brass ring is a functional piece of art that is sure to get the conversation going.
For the green thumb, we will also have a few living sculptures on offer. Our Air Plant Art pairs the beauty of exotic wood with air plants for a unique, minimalist look that makes for a great addition to the home.
For those looking for a deal, we’ll have a closeout special on a handful of skateboards and handplanes at sale prices. Just give us the password—howdy—and we’ll show you the goods at the backdoor deal.
And last but not least, we’re going to give away a handplane folks! Stop by our booth, fill out the form, and you’re on your way. Enjoy the Ride!
