Eagle River is hosting a long-running art show and sale this weekend. About a hundred exhibitors will participate in the 42nd year of Artarama, the juried fine art event.
Artarama chairperson Lori Hahn says it’s a competitive process to get into the show, and a committee tries to select a diverse representation of art forms.
“We jury the artwork in March, and we try to pick a number of artists in several different media. It ranges from painters to potters, woodworkers, chainsaw carving, metal sculpture…”
One of Eagle River's oldest events is set for Saturday.
The 41st Artarama is set for Riverside Park from 9 to 3 p.m.
Event chair Lori Hahn says Artarama is geared toward more of a fine art show than a craft show...
"....the public will see more than 100 artists in their booths and the mediums range from pottery to metal sculptures, they have many woodworkers from small items to big furniture..."
They also have photography, fused glass and jewelry. Participants are judged in the morning....
