Art Fair Update
We recently got back from a two week trip out east to State College, Pennsylvania and Ann Arbor, Michigan. Central Pennsylvania Art Festival is held downtown State College and on the campus of Penn State University. The show is four days and was founded in 1967 by the State College Chamber of Commerce and Penn State University's College of Arts and Architecture. Approximately 100,000 people visit the Festival each year. We meet new people from all over the country as the College holds it alumni weekend. Congratulations to Tom as he was awarded an Award of Merit.
We then headed to Ann Arbor, Michigan for The Original, another four day art festival. This year it was held from Thursday through Sunday instead of Wednesday through Saturday. The Ann Arbor Art Fair is one of Michigan's finest summer traditions and one of the largest outdoor art fairs in the nation. The streets of Ann Arbor transformed into an art lover's paradise where experience and enjoyment of original works of art, street performances, culinary treats and a variety of sidewalk sales. From seasoned art enthusiasts to novice collectors, thousands made the trip to discover something truly inspiring. We were able to visit with artist friends who live in the area and also exhibited at the show. Mark and Patty Mohrenweiser have been doing art festivals for over 19 years.Check out the artwork of Mark and Patti by clicking here.
