Art Fair

April 30, 2020  

As a long-time subscriber, you know that early each month we send you a special edition email to inform you of that month's upcoming best fairs.

It is dismaying to report that of the 99 May 2020 art fairs listed on Art Fair Calendar , there are only 19 to visit this month (maybe). Cancellations are coming daily, as the art fair organizations struggle to decide whether or not the show must go on.
These are challenging times for the artists who rely on your patronage for their livelihood. We invite you to click the links below and get the instant gratification of the new virtual world that allows you to shop right now. Think of all those Mother's Day, wedding, and graduation gifts that are on your list!

Stay home, wash your hands, and we'll see you on the other side of this pandemic at an art fair!
28th St. Croix Valley Pottery Tour Becomes the Online Tour
North of the Twin Cities
  Mother's Day Weekend - May 8-10
The 28th Annual 2020 Saint Croix Valley Pottery Tour will not be taking place in Minnesota at the seven host studios this year. After weighing safety logistics, and the critical need for social distancing, the Saint Croix Valley Pottery Tour will launch an Online Tour this year.

The Saint Croix Valley Pottery Tour hosts and guest potters have prepared a bountiful supply of pots that they have been working on for many months. We were dreaming of seeing you all again here in Minnesota but look forward to seeing you online on Mothers Day Weekend.

On Friday, May 8th web shops will go live at 10:00 a.m Central Daylight Time.
