Saturdays and Sundays May 25 thru Sept 2 2013
(Memorial Day weekend thru Labor Day)
Art on the Star
2181 Blue Star Highway between South Haven and Saugatuck
10-5 Sat. & Sun
Green Fire Studios
This is a new venue. It begins Saturday May 25th. The show is really an "Art Market" running through the summer on a main thoroughfare between Chicago and the lake shore art town Saugatuck. Blue Star Highway is a scenic lake shore route with a nearly constant flow of traffic from May thru Sept. Blue Star is overflowing with "Antique" shops but has little for the people who want a unique handcrafted work of art.
Art on the Star aspires to meet this desire of the tourist by offering direct dealings with the artist in a art fair atmosphere on a regular basis throughout the summer--much like a farmer's market. Also, it intends to give the artist a chance to show and sell their work in a art hot spot area at minimal cost ($25 per day for 10x10 space and no commissions). Artists can come for Saturday or Sunday or both. Payment is due before set up.
Only handcrafted work by the artist will be accepted. Demonstrations are encouraged. Multi-media artist (like me) can show all medias. A restroom will be provided onsite. This is a venue by an artist for the artist. We need to stick together!
Questions? Show organizer Damian Koorey will be pleased to take your call: 269-543-4020.
From Connie: Lots of artists live in this area. Do you have an open weekend and live nearby? This might work nicely for the convenience and the opportunity to catch the summer crowd who loves this area of the Michigan shoreline. I've been on this route in the summer. People cruising along on vacation, checking out the antique shops and galleries. The owner of the property is an artist and wants to help you cash in on these beautiful summer days. Can't beat the price!
