Where is Elk Rapids?  1186.jpg?width=300Visit this link.

Elk  Rapids  is  at the center of some of the most affluent real estate  in  northern  Michigan, on the shores of Grand Traverse Bay, near  Charlevoix  and  Harbor Springs.  This  area  has really blossomed with new homes, golf  courses and galleries  in  the last ten years, making it a desired  vacation second home  location,  for people from Chicago and Detroit.
The  art fair is held in Veteran's Memorial Park, by Grand Traverse Bay in  the heart of this charming harbor town.  Patrons can walk two short  blocks where they will find restaurants, antique shops and art  galleries.  Elk Rapids already attracts an art-loving clientele the year  around.

The  organizers  have  planned every detail including a reception (appetizers  and wine)  the  night before for the artists and volunteers.  The next  morning volunteers are on hand with golf carts at 5am to unload artists  vans and help with setup.  Then the sun comes out and the people show  up.  As they know this is a one-day show so it is "now or never."

Prize money:
$1000 Best of show; 2 - $400 Honorable Mention; $125 People's Choice

Space Fees:

1 space, 1 artist - $125; 1 space, 2 artists - $175; 2 spaces, 1 artist - $250
 CharlevoixArtist Testimonials:

--This was a terrific show, well organized, advertised, and well attended.  Glad to be in the show.
--My compliments to all involved.  The art presented was upscale.  Very well done.
--Thanks  for  selecting  fine art (as opposed to crafts). It's very difficult to  find  art  shows, and if you continue to keep a high standard and  accept  only  fine art, you will get that reputation and buyers coming  with  the  knowledge that it is an art show and they are prepared  to  spend  accordingly.
