Thank you for everyone that came to visit us at the Art Fair this year. It was a wonderful fair. We would like to share with you the winners for this year!
Announcing and Celebrating the Arts in Ann Arbor!
The State Street Area Art Fair had an enormously successful year and wishes to announce the winners of this year’s annual awards. There are eleven total, five each in both 3-D and 2-D categories, as well as a newly-instated award in honor of a past juror.
The works of 307 artists, combining highly contemporary works alongside very traditional crafts including glass, painting, ceramics, photography, jewelry, fiber, wood and more, were juried by the art fair’s standards of quality and excellence and are reflected in the artists’ dedication to their craft.
A jury of both practicing artists and other arts professionals has the task of screening these exhibitors, always looking for fresh and innovative approaches as well as stunning examples of age-old techniques.
The State Street Area Art Fair recently finished its 48th annual event, which ran from July 15th-18th, thanks to the State Street Area Association, a strong downtown organization that welcomes and opens its streets to these incredible artists each year.
