Summertime seems better and more beautiful with a trip to Belle Isle. And Belle Isle State Park on a weekend with 100 artists, plus food trucks, tropical drinks and more, sounds like a slice of heaven.
So mark your calendar for Aug. 3 and 4 for the Belle Isle Art Fair, produced by our long-time supporter Integrity Shows. (Mark Loeb, Integrity’s president and founder, is also a co-founder of Mint Artists Guild.)
These three Mint Artists all attend Cass Technical High School – and yet they got to know each other through Mint. All three will be in our group tent June 1 and 2 at the Palmer Park Art Fair.
Dawāyna Banks draws and works in digital arts, often showing people, in love or in other emotions. Dawāyna is heading to Michigan State University in the fall, and plans a career as an animator or graphic designer.
Prince Matthews creates appealing abstract paintings using acrylics, alcohol, salt and other tools. Quiet and hard working, Prince recently had his work in the professional show All Together Now, and was introduced to the curator by Mint.
De’Shaia Ventour works magic with duct tape, creating flower pens, accessories – and original art canvases. Smiling and organized, De’Shaia has an entrepreneurial approach to art, and she recently joined the Mint board of directors.

We are less than a month away from the Palmer Park Art Fair on June 1 and 2. And all our artists are working diligently to create work, plan their displays and prepare to show and sell their work during the juried boutique art fair
Anne Kinney is new to Mint, and she paints beautiful florals using water color, and sometimes pastels, charcoal or other mediums. She attends Clawson High School and has been an active volunteer, helping out at craft shows and more.
Alexis Wright attends Cass Technical High School and intends to go to Wayne State University in the fall. She works in digital art and acrylic painting. Alexis created the popular marbled paper at our youth-led art workshops.
These three artists and another 10 are working hard to prepare for their first fine art fair, or in Trinity’s case her 10th plus. So please meet them in person and support their creative entrepreneurship on June 1 or 2!
