TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Patrons of the arts enjoyed a picture-perfect day at the Mulvane Mountain/Plains Art Fair at Washburn University on 1700 SW College Avenue.

More than 80 artists from across the country displayed their creations, from paintings, drawings and photography to handcrafted ceramics and textiles.

It's the twentieth year Friends of the Mulvane Art Museum are hosting the fundraiser to benefit the museum.

"This is my first time here. It's been great and I've heard great things about this year and about the art that is here," Suzie Utecht, a Topeka artist, said. "The weather has been great, I don't remember a show that has been this fabulous."

"We've been doing this show for years and it's the only one we do outside of Colorado, Pat Kanan, an artist from Colorado, said. "We just love this show, the people are so nice and we just love to come to Topeka," he said.

Art buyers like Tuck Duncan say they enjoyed seeing the diversity of creativity. "I like to see what the local artists are doing, but also all the other artists from different states. I like the variety," Duncan said. "It's good time to come out and see what's available." he said.

The fair continues Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are $6 dollars at the gate and free for children 12 or younger.
