The location. Gorgeous Swede Hollow Park (called St. Paul’s “hidden gem” by journalists), is just a few blocks east of the city’s Lowertown artist area and 120 feet below the streets.

The artists:  We anticipate over 50 visual & performing artists, many creating works on site—glass mosaics, murals, sculpture, painted furniture. Plein air (open-air) painters will seek to capture the beauty of the deep, lush ravine, with its ponds and stream, its variety of flora and fauna.

New this Year: Juried, prize-awarded Sculpture Installation Contest. Teen art poster contest. Teen Gallery, Plein Air Art class, Swede Hollow History Booth.

Uniqueness: It’s the only art fair on the city’s entire East Side. 

Ethnic richness:  A local physician, using replica of a Haitian tent-home, will exhibit photos of post-earthquake Haiti in a canvas tent like the Haitian dwellings he experienced.
