Art Fair On The Square will be celebrating its 63rd year next weekend, September 25th and 26th, and we’ll be there! Located around the picturesque state capitol in Madison, Wisconsin, Art Fair On The Square is an event that fuels the arts in Madison, making it accessible to the community. This event is an extension of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, which offers experiences to educate and inspire. They offer free admission year round, providing exhibitions and educational programs. The museum is toured by over 200,000 guests each year.
As one of the most highly regarded outdoor celebrations of the midwest, Art Fair On The Square will have something for everyone. While normally taking place in the month of July, we think this free event will be a beautiful time of year to make the trip to Wisconsin’s Capitol. You can expect nearly 500 artists of all genres, and nearly 200,000 visitors. Along with paintings, prints, photographs, sculpture, jewelry, handmade clothing and accessories, and fine craft, you will find a fun mix of food, entertainment, and music. This will be our first year at the event, and we are so excited to be there.
With almost six years under our tool belt, we have been able to glean from the many fairs we have had the privilege to be a part of, our biggest to date being the Minnesota State Fair this month. We are so thankful for the helpful feedback from all of you and look forward to bringing you more of your favorite collections in the sizes you crave. We will be bringing you a variety of sizes, from statement pieces as well as many accessible sizes in your favorite styles and colors.
Throughout our business we have continually pursued, explored, and experimented with the medium of new and reclaimed wood as the vehicle to express our artistic design and inspiration. Our rustic and classic wood mosaic art forged the way as the foundation of our work. This past year we have been developing a new style that is taking the contemporary art world by storm, and is nothing like the wood mosaic art world has experienced. We are marrying our traditional design elements with bold clean lines, adding intriguing spherical elements and creating a refreshing Americana feel.
This coming weekend at the Art Fair On The Square we will be bringing you a wide variety of size and color options in the designs you love. We will have larger pieces added to our Arches Collection. We will also be bringing you more from the Gatsby Collection, in more of your favorite colors and in all shapes and sizes.
We know that not everyone will be able to make the trip to Wisconsin’s capitol in the heart of downtown Madison. That is why we will be releasing a limited amount of pieces from these collections online and at our local shop on the opening day of Art On The Square, Saturday morning, September 25th. As always, we want to thank you for supporting our small business, locally handcrafting all of our artwork in our beautiful port city of Duluth, MN.
