Kozmo Events invites you to join Michiana's only premier indoor art fair, inside at the beautiful Northern Indiana Event Center, a popular event destination visible and easily accessible from the Indiana Toll Road.
Elkhart County, IN, has gained a fine reputation as a market for acquiring and selling art- from the quarterly ArtWalk events to the Midwest Museum of American Art Juried Regional show and the annual Taste of the Gardens. For the Love of Art is a great addition to Elkhart's cultural events.
Why should you participate? For the Love of Art combines an exciting array of traditional and contemporary artists from Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Illinois and beyond in a first class facility that is conveniently accessible from interstate 80/90 * The Northern Indiana Event Center (RV Hall of Fame).
The 2015 show will feature over 40 artists with a variety of different media from pottery, fine woodwork, handcrafted furniture, blown glass, fiber art, sculptures, paintings and many more original pieces of art. We accept only a few artists per medium to ensure all artists will benefit financially. We go above and beyond to accommodate each artists and promote their work.
Once your application and fee is accepted you will receive an email with complete details for the show.

My point precisely, Joan. I hope to attend and meet you again.

I walked it last year (it was a day before I was leaving for FL) and was impressed enough to sign up for it this year. Don't expect miracles, but the promoter is working very hard, and there's not much else going on up here in winter.

Comment by Connie Mettler on January 21, 2015 at 2:39pm

Here's the deal, to my way of thinking: if it is reasonably priced, if it is near, if you can keep your expenses low, if you can bring in some income in March with an event you can go back to then you've got to do it.

Okay, that sounds good. If the fees are reasonable, which it sounds like,
I'm willing to try it. It's about a two and a half hours drive straight up US 31 for me until we get close to there.

This is its second year, Robert. The promoter, Shireen Kline, is working her tail off to make it work. That guarantees her work ethic as she really wants to bring small events to communities in her region of southern Michigan/northern Indiana. The facility is nice and accessible. I've seen it from the Toll Road heading to Chicago. The fee is very reasonable. Hoping for the best, or at least a possible money making opportunity during a slow time of the year in the area.
