The Broad Ripple Art Fair, sponsored by the Indianapolis Art Center, is a national juried fair and competition that takes place every May. This year’s event is set for this weekend, May 17 and May 18. If you go, look for pastel artist, Brian Mathas Burt, a four-time winner in the magazine’s Pastel 100 competition and a soon-to-be-featured artist in the October issue. Summerfair is the official launch of summertime for the Cincinnati area. The national juried fair, which takes place at the historic Coney Island park, brings together artists working in paint media, printmaking, jewely, photography, fiber, ceramics and more. The dates are May 30 through June 1. To get more information, including a complete list of participating artists (and a list of food vendors, because as you know, cruising an art fair can really muster up one’s appetite!), visit the website. The winning design in the Summerfair poster competition (shown here) was created by Michael Holder.
