fairs, including the Street Art Fair, the Summer Art Fair and the State Street Art Fair.

Philadelphia resident Armond Scavo, who creates art with ornamental stones typically used for jewelry, sold some of his work at the fair.

Jean, a resident of Orlando, Florida, said she has been commuting to the fair for the past 40 years. “I found some artwork and things for my children; my grandchildren, so I’m havin’ a good time,” she said.

The fair will continue for the rest of the week, ending  at 6 p.m. Saturday. Visit this link for complete art fair information.
