3. Art Fair Dolls
By Mae Travels (Mae Travels)
Many artists at the Ann Arbor Art Fair make dolls for collectors. Some dolls are more like statues, but many of them are soft dolls with clothing made of cloth. I think that lots of grown ups and also children really love dolls of all ….

I agree with Mae, especially the dolls of Sharon Snoeyink, they have a fairy tale quality with no detail unembellished.

Our Art Fair purchases included two ceramic items. We were very impressed by this booth of potter Adam Spector: We selected this plate: For several years, we’ve been very fond of the pottery made by Marvin Blackmore, who works in a …

I know the work of Marvin, absolutely gallery quality, every piece unusual and fine.

    Hi Connie!
    I have almost recuperated from the staging of our 47th Wyadnotte Street Art Fair. People seemed to enjoy hte fair and we have collected over 400 survys we are entering about how folks enjoyed the fair.

    What we had no luck on was reaching our artists for a survey this year , so we are following up with a mailing next week they can replay by End of SEpt so we have a handle on how they fared well. We opend up the layout with the loss of the Wyandote Theatre so there is room to grow now, nad we had an adjacent Craft Fair growing nearby but seprately run by our Merchant Assocation. Hope you had a chance ot come around.

    Just thought I would share!

    Lisa Hooper,
    DDA Director and Wyandotte Street Art Fair
