Remember when you were a kid and you used to make different things out of clay? The 21st annual Royal Oak: Clay, Glass and Metal Show took place this past weekend. The show featured an amazing diversity of work done by various artist, many of which were native Michiganders. Over 125 artist were selected by a jury process to be featured in the show.
We couldn’t imagine what it’s like, as an artist, having many people admire your original works so we took our curiosity to the artist themselves. When Street Team member Sydney B. asked Andy Kurth, local artist featured in the fair, about what being featured in the fair he lit up with joy as he talked about his art and how much he loved showing it off.
“I just like getting my art out into the world and seeing everybody else’s too. It’s cool getting 100 plus artists out here all together at one time,” says Andy.
Despite the wind and rain clouds, the event gathered plenty of excited art lovers seeking one of a kind work.
In three words how can you describe this show- “Beautiful. Local. Just friendly,” says guest Kristin Love.
The CW50 Street Team enjoyed admiring the array of art featured in the show and we can’t wait to see everyone gather again for the Royal Oak: Clay, Glass and Metal Show!
