July 29 & 30
Deadline: June 1
The Belleville Area Council for the Arts presents the inaugural Artaffair on Main. Nestled on the shores of picturesque Belleville Lake, quaint tree lined Downtown Belleville provides the perfect venue for a late July fine art, contemporary craft and antique extravaganza.
Belleville is an ideal location
situated between Ann Arbor and Detroit, convenient to area expressways I-94, I-275 and US-23; only minutes west of Detroit Metropolitan situated between Ann Arbor and Detroit, and a short drive from the Ambassador Bridge from Canada.
Artaffair is a juried show, therefore, we ask that only the highest quality hand-crafted items be
submitted. No commercial or manufactured items will be allowed. In order to maintain a balanced show, the number of exhibitors participating in each category will be limited so that we can provide maximum appeal to visitors.
The Belleville Area Council for the Arts (BACA) has been in existence for over twenty years and has a proven track record of hosting many successful artistic and cultural events such as Brunch with Bach, Art Smart, Art Colony, many community art shows and the Music Lakeside concert
series. All revenue from the Artaffair will be used to fund BACA art and cultural events throughout the year.
Will you be in Ann Arbor the previous week? Why not plan to spend the week in Michigan's vacationlands and come to Belleville the following weekend?
