After 30 years of making art, Annatjie Els is doing her first art fair, the Taste of Champaign-Urbana.
The Champaign woman trained as a lawyer in her native South Africa but took an Urbana Park District watercolor class about 30 years ago.
The artist is now making the leap to showing and selling her own watercolors.
This week, Paul Wood chats with Cole Rabenort of the Fights, which also includes Clayton Deering, Nicholas Stine, David Pride and Joe Gerard. They've just released "Off Your Horse" on Parasol Records.
Tell us about "Off Your Horse," your first full-length album.
