Art on the Bay in Alpena
Sunday, July 20, 2014, 6:00 PM
Thunder Bay Arts Council presents the 38th Annual "Art on the Bay" Open Air Fine Art and Craft Show! Artists and crafters will showcase their "creations" in this juried event. The fair coincides with the first weekend of Michigan Brown Trout Festival.
Fine art includes oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings with a wide range of subject matter. There are potters who make their own clay and glazes creating high-fired stoneware.
Hand-crafted jewelry as well as clothing for dolls, children and adults will be available along with needle art, wall hangings, quilting and hand-knit items. Artisans who work with wood and metal will show their creations in signs, furniture and lawn art. A variety of authors are also represented.
Featured this year is "Empty Canvas," a live music and interactive painting on canvass performance on Saturday, June 20, from 11-1 at the Band Shell. The finished painting will be auctioned at "Wine at the Harbor" from 1-7PM following the performance. Visit emptycanvaslive.com for more details.
"Kids Arts Zone" will be available from noon-4:00pm on Saturday and 11:00-3:00pm on Sunday.
A variety of food will be available on the grounds.
