Seven Mint Artists will show and sell their creative work at the Funky Ferndale Art Fair on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Among them are a photographer, a jewelry artist, a multi media artist and a few painters. All are ages 13 to 19 and are from Detroit or Hamtramck.
Mint’s tents will be about half way down Nine Mile near Allen Street, and also near Affirmations. Some 120 professional artists also set up and sell at Funky Ferndale.
Four Mint Artists will be part of this artisan and maker event on Sunday at Shed 5 in Eastern Market. They are Damon FirstBorn Chamblis, Espacia Fotiu, Omari Norman and Maisha Rahman, with paintings, photos, multi media and jewelry. Come by and buy!
If you want to see the creative future of Detroit, and support creative artists ages 13 to 19, come to the Palmer Park Art Fair on Saturday and Sunday.
Mint will have two tents this year – 15 artists, up from 11 last year. And one of our 2015 alumni, Ackeem Salmon, is in his first solo art fair in a tent nearby.
The photo above of Eleanor Olson painting was taken by Mint photographer Omari June Norman. Below is jewelry by Trinity Brown and artist Maisha Rahman at last year’s Palmer Park fair.
They create jewelry, crocheted penguins, photographs, paintings, multi media and more. Their work will be great graduation gifts, birthday presents or gifts for teachers, fathers or yourself. Details are found on the Palmer Park ART Fair website. Delectable art is found in the two Mint tents half way up to the Palmer Park Log Cabin.
