Art on the Farm in Dexter Township ready to celebrate 8th year
Begun by Lauren Kingsley and her husband, Jack Spack, Jr., both artists, the annual event takes place the last Sunday in October each year. It started as a small gathering of some of the Kingsley’s artist friends.
This year, the event takes place Oct. 30 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at 12075 Island Lake Road. Parking and admission are free.
“Every year, it gets more popular through word of mouth,” Kingsley said. “Some people tell me they do all of their Christmas shopping at Art on the Farm,” she said.
And each year, there are new faces exhibiting. Among this year’s newcomers are Mike Hettinger, who will bring “his floorcloths and furniture" and James Edward Hady, "a photographer with a distinct vision,” Kingsley said.
The vendors will set up inside several barns for the show.
Exhibitors will include ironsmith John Rayer and Doug Fraleigh of Fraleigh’s Nursery, who will display his handmade canoes.
The Hillrays, a local blue grass band, will play during the event, according to the website.
