Art Fair, a way to save money and spend a summer day

You are bored to death. The children want something to do. You check current newspapers and internet to see if any free activities are available.


You see a notice about an Art Fair. You have never been to an Art Fair and you know very little about painting, drawing, sculpture, or anything else which might be presented.



What do you think? Why not try attending. It will give you something to do and, after all, it is free!



Let’s assume you decide to attend an art fair in your home community or area. You are going to view a lot of things produced by people hoping their work will attract visitors.


You will see many different items, in many different styles. You will decide what you like and what you don’t like. At most art fairs, the creator of the art will be there to speak with you, your family members, and friends. Your group will be able to make comments and ask questions about the art piece.



I would like to introduce you what you might see at an Art Fair


I live near Excelsior MN. This city is perched on the side of a very large lake. A piece of land provides a site for community events.


I would like to illustrate what you may find if you attend an art fair.


I plan to do this through photographs. I received permission from the artists to present examples of their work.


They use a lot of different materials.  These include metal and more, wood, paint, fabric,

mosaic material, camera and lens, glass, copper and wood. 


If you do attend an Art Fair, I hope that you and your group enjoy yourselves. It can be a pleasant experience and an opportunity to learn from the artist.


Art is an entity produced by those who consider it important. It requires thought, practice, and desire to produce something which will satisfy others. Art has no boundaries. It does not belong to one branch of work. It belongs to the creator of the work and the person who owns it.
