CHARLESTON -

There were no mosh pits readily available, but this festival made quite a splash nonetheless.

Art-A-Palooza, an event hosted by The Tamarack Foundation, was held Saturday, Sept. 14, at the East End Bazaar and Capitol Market in Charleston.

About two dozen artists and craftspeople displayed their work, and some demonstrated their crafts for folks who stopped by the open-air booths on a crisp, late summer morning.

Shoppers, collectors and art enthusiasts took home jewelry, paintings, hats, mixed media pieces and other items while listening to live music and snacking on fare from local food trucks on site.

The Tamarack Foundation "is dedicated to support West Virginia artists, craftspeople, performers and food producers, including an emergency relief fund to help in times of career-threatening circumstances."

It has helped about 2,000 art-based businesses in all 55 W.Va. counties. The entrepreneurs contribute an estimated $18.6 million annually to the state's economy, according to Tamarack.
