Artists of All Kinds
The 2015 lineup of 187 jury-selected artists from across the country includes more than 60 first-time artists. Last year's top prize winner will be here, painter Marie Lemothe, whose art focuses on nature. Jewelry artist David Smallcombe, ceramicist Julie Devers, and painter Conrad Kauffman are among long-time favorites who will be on view. Of the 12 mediums you'll see, jewelry, painting, and ceramics the most represented, but there is a growing number of accomplished glass, fiber, leather, and wood artists set to join us. Check out all of the artists who are coming. If you are an artist, click here for the artists' information page.
In addition to the art, entertainment abounds, from start to finish. Check out the Arts Fair 2015 entertainment roster.
