CHEBOYGAN AREA ARTS COUNCIL ART FESTIVAL
A wide variety of fine arts and crafts will be presented at the 48th Annual Cheboygan Arts Festival on Saturday, July 9, 2016 from 9:30am to 3pm, at the Cheboygan Festival Square.
For interested artists, it is not too late to secure a booth to exhibit your art. The Pavilion provides a new outdoor facility with a roof for inclement weather, electricity is available and the downtown location will attract many shoppers. Ribbons and cash prizes are awarded. If you are interested in renting space for your art, contact The Opera House at 231-627-5432.
Exhibitors will be appearing from Cheboygan and around Michigan. In the fine arts category, there will be a variety of watercolor and oil paintings, along with sculptures, glass, photography, and pottery. Visitors will also find a selection of jewelry, fabric art, and furniture. Each artist’s work has been reviewed by a jury for originality and quality. This event is unique in that awards are presented during the show, after judges have reviewed the works on display.
The Band February Sky will be on hand to serenade shoppers on Saturday from 10am until 1pm. There are restaurants and other shopping opportunities within walking distance of the Pavilion. The show ends at 3p.m. This program is sponsored in part by Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Activities.
