If you find yourself in Michigan on October 12th, you simply must get to the 6th annual Harvest Art Market that will take place from 10-4 at the Silver Maples of Chelsea (100 Silver Maples Dr.). This lovely free event is open to the public and has grown into a scrumptious location to enjoy art of all types.

As Shawn Personke, the director of wellness and public relations for Silver Maples, said

“The Harvest Art Market has grown and evolved over the past six years. But we’ve stayed true to our original thought that we wanted the show to offer really interesting items, handmade, and fair prices.  So that’s the kind of artist we welcome and who finds the most success.”

The show this year will include six new artists. These include the zipper artists Zipper Lady, Heather Merritt, ironsmith Russ Shackson and ceramic artisan tile maker Julie Cohen and others.

As Personke said, “Each year we seek out a couple of new artists and this year we specifically wanted to add something different.  We’re really excited about these new artists.  Heather Merritt was named Best of Show at the 2011 Henry Ford Maker Fair.  We haven’t had a blacksmith or a tile maker before, and I think both Russ and Julie will be offering some beautiful work.”

The show will also have the Allegro Winds at 11 am and a jazz/folk guitarist named John Latini at 1 pm. The entire event is certainly worth enjoying.
