Waterfront art fair showcases regional artists

Artists from across the region flocked to the Grand Haven Municipal Marina on Saturday for the 11th annual Art on the Riverfront. Sponsored by the Grand Haven Area Arts Council, the one-day exhibit showcased the work of regional artists in a variety of media, including painting, photography, sculpture, pottery, jewelry, glass, wood and metal. Brad Patterson, whose work is showcased at both Gallery Uptown and at his home studio in Grand Haven, has been exhibiting his pottery at the show for the nearly a decade.

“I think its great its a great show,” Patterson said. “I’ve done the show for nine years now and it’s really supported by the community and the community really comes out to buy local artwork here.”

Patterson, who has been working with pottery for nearly 12 years, said that while there are other art shows in Grand Haven throughout the year, the waterfront show provided more local flavor.

“I think this is more of the local art show for Grand Haven, so it works out really well to have a smaller show where its a little more intimate to talk to the artists,” Patterson said. “And you know a lot more of the artists when you come out to the show.”

I always love to read about events where local artists have the opportunity to showcase their works. This sounds like it as a huge success. I am hopeful to see more from you in the future.
