The CCAA has organized and presented the Eagle Harbor Art Fair every year for 60 years. The Art Fair is held every year 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.
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.
The Eagle Harbor Art Fair is a very popular Fair, with 60 plus artists in 70 spaces displaying their pieces for sale. 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 were in attendance at the 2019 Fair.
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”.
