The Holiday Art Fair has become well known for featuring fine arts and crafts by Michigan artists. Artists are encouraged to bring original art in all price ranges but especially prices below $30. This gives customers lots of choices of original art for holiday gift giving. The fair is well balanced with artists representing the mediums of blown glass, soft and metal sculptures, pottery, prints, printings, photographs, jewelry, fibers and much more.
Each year, there will be a benefit raffle to help raise funds to offset the cost of school visits. Many schools in the region have had budget cuts, which prohibit them from visiting the museum. Schools are able to apply for funds to help offset the cost of buses or admission.
Volunteers are always needed to assist with the Art Fair, if you are interested in helping out, please contact Terry Tarnow at (231) 995-1587 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
