Prices range from $25 hand designed earrings to $30,000 metal life size sculptures.

Here are a few of the artists you will be able to meet this weekend:
The first artist we would like to introduce to you is Eric Nye. Eric creates 3D functional art objects made from wood which incorporate his original designs and photographs into an interactive art piece. Each shape has three sides, each containing a different image. When the viewer rotates a piece they create a new composition. What an incredible piece of art! You can learn more about Eric HERE.
Next, we have Scott Fishman. Scott has a keen eye for detail. He is constantly drawn to the enticing colors and intricate patterns that are often overlooked and under appreciated in today’s hurried world. His photography is phenomenal! Click HERE for more information about the artist.
The final artist we are going to share with you today is Tavlos. Tavlos paints in the present tense. The past and the future are intensely present in each electrifying image. His work always has mirrored each decade in which he has been present and painting. You can view more of this talented artist’s work HERE.
You will be able to meet these artists mentioned above along with 200 of the nation’s top artists! This is a must-see summer event!
