All about Summit Art Fest, from the show organizers:

"The 12th annual Summit Art Festival is a 3-day, outdoor, high-quality fine art event held in the vibrant, historic entertainment district of downtown Lee's Summit, MO.   Featuring over 100 artists from all over the country, visitors enjoy a unique blend of art, music and food!

In addition, the festival showcases over 250 works of art created by area students and the Stuck On Art live competition.  The home of Summit Art-GOT Art Gallery is located on the festival site and features an exhibition of works created by area art faculty and staff, and our famous Artist Hospitality Lounge.  Entertaining, non-amplified music is provided by local musicians throughout the entire weekend at various performance locations. Local food trucks serve up a delicious mix of casual street fare, beverages and cocktails.
A rising suburb of Kansas City, Lee’s Summit has recently been named Time/Money’s No. 41 Best Place to Live in 2018!  With a population nearing 100,000, the area is filled with historic buildings, restaurants and unique shops. Downtown Lee's Summit surrounds the historic depot and Amtrak train station, and the Historical Society of Lee's Summit Museum.

Free admission all weekend!

Here's a sampling of pieces we'll have at Summit Art: one-of-a-kind necklaces, handstamped sterling bangles and cuffs, and lightweight turquoise, lapis, hoop and post earrings.

Kristin Christopher JewelrySee some of these pieces on our earrings and bracelet pages in our online shop. Especially as we head into the holidays, our time is best spent making jewelry, so our pieces often won't make it to the website before our events. See a list of all our shows where you can see our designs in person.

If you can't make it to our shows, please email us at or send us a direct message in Facebook or Instagram when you see a piece you're interested in. It's a great way to get first dibs on our one-of-a-kind pieces (before they make it to our shows)! We also ship nationwide -- now is a good time to begin gift shopping to help keep stress levels lower during the holidays. (I'm taking my own advice here, too, as someone who feels a lot of stress during December!)

Ahhh, and now it's time for me to swtich gears and get back to my pile of copper to file & drill to reach my goal of starting a new patina batch tomorrow ... wish me luck. This is the part where science meets art and my anxiety goes up, haha ... (I wish I was kidding!). 

We hope you're healthy and life is treating you well. We're really looking forward to seeing you at Summit Art Fest!

2020 — Ups, Downs, and Silver Linings

by Kristin Cooper May 28, 2020 1 Comment

Compassion is the kind of “viral contagion” worth focusing on when all else feels out of our control. It’s the world’s best medicine during this pandemic, and the silver lining we would have never discovered if life hadn’t screeched to a stop in such a tragic and scary way.
