The artists represented will cover many different genres including; painting, stained glass, leather, fabric art, wood carving, pottery, photography, weaving, copper, jewelry, stone cutting and more.
Artists that are featured come from around the country, as well as from our own back yard.
You will not want to miss the ever popular, large copper frog sculptures for your patio or pond, or the wonderful stone houses, for your garden, made by Adam New of Mentor. There will also be banks handcrafted from original post office doors, beautifully hand woven outfits of local artist, Nancy Hart, and brooms, made by Chuck Fath of Burton.
A great selection of restaurants will be open on the Square during the festival for your dining pleasure, as well as food vendors at the show. While on the Square, enjoy shopping in a variety of shops and boutiques that will also be open.
