Ann Arbor Art Fair
Good Morning from Ann Arbor, home of the infamous Ann Arbor Art Fair! We Ann Arborites love it, but we do like to complain about it. Not the Art Fair itself, but what it does to our daily existence here. It screws it up plenty, that's what it does - but it's worth it. I spent this morning walking around and thought I could show you a couple of pictures. Driving anywhere downtown is practically impossible for the duration of the show. I hopped on the bus outside my front door and was dropped off not far from South University where most of these photos were taken. Enjoy! The first one is the Ann Arbor Potter's Guild set up on the steps of Hill Auditorium. Here is something particularly quilty...those are tiny little quilts from fiber artist Marcia Derse.
Next is some wonderful paintings from an artist from Illinois. I loved her booth. I could almost feel like I was in Chicago!
This wonderful baseball and mitt was beaded by Plains Indian artist Gwen Fedor. Americana Indeed. After a lovely stroll I stopped at Afternoon Delight and had a Berry Patch for Brunch. It is even better than it looks! If you are in the area - make sure to see it for yourself and remember to patronize your local artists. Make sure to click on the photos to enlarge to REALLY see the details.
