ArtRapids! on June 26

Posted on June 21, 2010


The 5th annual ArtRapids! fair will fill Memorial Park in Elk Rapids with a feast for your eyes and ears this Saturday. The free juried show features 65 artists, creative activities for children, live music all day, and a demonstration of watercolor techniques by juror Chuck Forman. I don’t see how you can go wrong.

Music all day:

  • Tom Kaufman, 10am-noon at the stage
  • Kathryn Christian, 11am at the Children’s Tent
  • Ron Getz and Ronnie Hernandez, 12:30-2:30pm at the stage
  • Robert Abate Trio, 3-5pm at the stage

Raffle of seven one-of-a-kind jackets

. . . made and donated by Pamela Meland, and designed by area artisans. The jackets are on display in various businesses in town, and can be viewed at Evening on River Street on June 23. Raffle tickets are available at Mullaly’s 128, Blue Heron Gallery, Twisted Fish Gallery and Evening on River Street. Tickets will be sold until 4:00 pm at the art fair, at which time the winning tickets will be drawn. You need not be present to win.
