A few of Katia Goa's paintings on display that afternoon. Here in the center was a semi-abstract image of an elephant with a cat amid bubbles.

This large painting features elements common to all her art at the faire. A human in a cat suit (or a cat with a human face), and an elephant with an unusually long trunk.

A painted plywood panel provided holes for kids and adults to put their faces up to for humorous photos. Here a kid had nearly placed his face in a hole as his mom waited with phone at the ready.
