Art Fair - Part II

Geez, I sounded like a big party pooper in the previous post, didn't I? Dire warnings of dehydration and veiled threats of vehicle confiscations. Forget that - just drink water and don't park in private lots and you will have a grand time. Thank You. (Courtesy of the Ann Arbor Convention and Visitors Bureau).Okay, now for more art.........Next were these beautiful abstract paintings that reminded me of fabric collages. They are by painter William LaChance.

In the booth of Chris Roberts-Antieau there were lots of fabric paintings/collages. This very large picture is "The Blues"Sorry about the reflection on the glass. These portraits in fabric and thread are really wonderful. We in Ann Arbor have loved Chris's work for years and now the rest of the world is catching on.


Onto this intriguing photography..... I wish my other photos turned out better. This is the only one that came out. What we have here are contemporary photos with a very vintage look. They are by Michael Bryant and he uses a toy camera to get this effect. They were all framed impeccably. Really, really awesome.

Finally today is the mixed media of John Whipple. I love this stuff. I am kicking myself that I missed the workshop he and his wife Lyn had at Found last weekend. Hopefully it will be repeated and I will make sure to get a seat.
And now what has become a mini-tradition.... a Berry Patch was consumed at Afternoon Delight before the bus ride home. Yum.

Ok, I love the toys. They're so cool!! Funny, I was going ask about any food offerings. There at the end.. the prize.

I'm going to have to fly out there to take in this fair one day.
