The Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair is one of four official partner fairs that comprise the award-winning and highly respected Ann Arbor Art Fair. More than 600,000 people attend the event each year. The Summer Art Fair is located in the heart of Ann Arbor stretching from its charming downtown to the campus of University of Michigan. The Summer Art Fair has 375 artist booths, art demonstrations and lively entertainment.
Featured Artist John Booth:
John Booth paints subject matter that bursts with color and enthusiasm. He is fascinated how a small object’s spirit and energy is so greatly magnified when painted large. Paintings are acrylic on medium density fiberboard. Enjoy and maybe, when you go on your way, you might again find pleasure in those little things in life. Make sure to visit John’s website and see more of his wonderful work. You can find John in the Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair in booth #D 375.
