The Copper Country Associated Artists
Eagle Harbor Art Fair
The CCAA has organized and presented the Eagle Harbor Art Fair for 60 years. The Art Fair is held at St. Peter's by the Sea Church in Eagle Harbor, MI on the second weekend of August. This is a juried art fair and all work is original. Each year there are 60 to 70 vendors selling their work. Media represented are jewelry, ceramics, painting, photography, woodcarving, fabrics, stained glass and more.
60th Anniversary Special Event
The Eagle Harbor Art Fair will take place as scheduled on August 14 and 15 in Eagle Harbor. After an unprecedented postponement in 2020, this will be the 60th anniversary of the Art Fair! The CCAA is doing something special to show our gratitude to the many attendees that, over the years, have made the Art Fair so successful. CCAA members have donated unique and beautiful pieces of their artwork to be awarded to randomly selected Fair attendees. Several times during the course of each day, Saturday and Sunday, random people will be selected as winners. Plan on coming out to enjoy yourselves and maybe you will be one of the lucky winners.
The Art Fair Vendors
The Eagle Harbor Art Fair is a very popular Fair, with 69 artists in 74 spaces displaying their work for sale. Most are returning artists but there are 12 artists new to the Fair this year. There are artists offering jewelry, photography, paintings, fabric art, ceramics and pottery, stained glass and more. Artists come from all over the Midwest and some even further. See the list below of the vendors that will be attendance at the 2021 Fair.
In addition, the work of CCAA member-artists can be seen and purchased in the basement of St. Peters by the Sea Church.
Each year the CCAA selects one member to showcase their work at the Art Fair. The Featured Artist this year will be stained glass artist Christine Porter.
Christine has said that “The inspirations of nature, family, and meaningful experiences and places mostly drive my desire to create in stained glass. How light enlivens the beauty of the individual pieces of stained glass, by coming through them, reflecting off of, and seeming sometimes to even play with them, to me, makes stained glass have a very expressive nature to design with”
Christine lived and worked in Wisconsin, Iowa and for awhile in Copper Harbor. She returned to live in, and be inspired by, the beautiful Keweenaw in 2013. “I am enjoying the opportunity to create on my own again, and in collaboration with customers”.
