COLUMBIA, SC — Artists gathered in Columbia’s Rosewood neighborhood Saturday to sell and create art.
Simon Graham is a 72-year-old wood carver who began his hobby after checking a book out at the library.
He had his art displayed and said he sold a few pieces earlier in the day. But his 13-year-old grandson Houston Moore might fool you.
“I'm the talent behind all of this,” Moore joked.
But Graham won't let his grandson use the wood carving tools.
“I don't want him to go home missing something” like a finger or limb, Graham joked.
Houston enjoyed the festival and his favorite part was painting on a dumpster in what was called “authorized vandalism,” he said.
At the dumpster, artist Marcee Musgrove painted a white lotus.
