Art-A-Fair is now open for the summer months. Art-A-Fair is a fine art festival featuring works of art by local and world-renowned artists. There are 125 artists represented with work varying from photography and painting to jewelery, sculpture and pottery, glass work and mixed media.
The beautiful Tivoli-Too, on the same grounds as Art-a-Fair, is transformed into an art oasis. When taking my family, I found the aisles easy to navigate with my stroller and two kindergartners. Large canopies covered the exhibits keeping us shaded and cool as we browsed. My son was attracted to any piece featuring sea life and my daughter to anything that "sparkled." We were all enamoured with the work of Sylvia Simmons. She is glass artist and had made intricate metal and glass worked kaleidoscopes.
Sylvia was kind enough to allow the kids to look into each kaleidoscope.
Another unique artist we came across was water colourist Scott Sutton. He has created original characters, "The Family of Ree", and stories featuring them. In addition he has written children’s books about the adventures of “The Family of Ree.” He also has plush characters, posters and original artwork for purchase at his booth.
Beyond the artwork, you can also enjoy the fine cuisine of Tivoli Too. Also every Thursday through Sunday, enjoy live entertainment on the festival grounds.
