2019 Eagle Harbor Art Fair
The 2019 Eagle Harbor Art Fair was a BIG success. There were two wonderful days of “Copper Country” weather, blue skies, low 70’s and a gentle breeze.
The Fair was very well attended, with large groups of people on both Saturday and Sunday. The crowds circulated around the artist’s booths. Quite a few were seen carrying that special treasure back to their car.
This was a very popular Art Fair, with a record 69 artists displaying their pieces for sale. There were artists offering jewelry, photography, paintings, fabric art, ceramics and pottery, stained glass and more. Artists came from all over the Midwest and some even further. See the list below of the vendors that were in attendance
Each year the CCAA selects one member to showcase their work at the Fair. The Featured Artist this year was HeatherMcGee.
Heather was busy all weekend talking to visitors who came to admire her artwork. Heather creates many one-of-a-kind pieces of art using paper, driftwood, mobiles, rock pictures and jewelry. She performed demonstrations of her techniques for making many of these oieces.various items.
Heather was born and raised in Hancock, MI. She runs a child care center in Hancock for children ages 0-6. She loves working with children and tells them they do not have to color in the lines.
