On Saturday, July 28, over 100 artists and artisans from across the country will exhibit and sell their work on the campus of Northwestern Michigan College in Traverse City. The 58th annual Crooked Tree Outdoor Art Fair will bring together artists working in a wide variety of media who share a commitment to artistic excellence and craftsmanship.

The Crooked Tree Outdoor Art Fair includes sculpture, jewelry, glass, fibers, paintings and other 2-D fine art, pottery, metalwork, and more.  In addition to exhibiting and selling their work, artists are competing for three cash awards, chosen by a panel of three jurors.

Admission is free, and ample parking is conveniently located.  Fair hours are 9:00 am - 4:00 pm.

Due to construction on campus, the art fair will be held behind the new dorm - North Hall #18.
