ROYAL OAK (CBS Detroit) - Royal Oak is doing it again. The city’s second annual Fine Art Show will be set in Royal Oak’s historic Farmers Market, attracting artists from around Michigan and northern Ohio.
Organizers said this art show offers a unique blend of fine art and fine crafts made by various artists. Art work will be for sale in many categories including drawing, painting, photography, clay, glass, mixed media, and more.
Also, there’s a treat Friday evening for everyone in attendance. During the Friday Preview Party, artists and guests will be entertained by Cello-Bella! who is a group of local musicians, experience a pleasing light fare from Royal Oak downtown restaurants, and be able to participate in a silent auction with items donated by the artists. A portion of proceeds for this auction will go to help benefit local charities.
The art show will be held from 2-8 p.m. Friday, March 1, with the preview party from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday, March 2, 2013 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
