Courtney will be bringing a nice blend of jewelry designs, along with other hand crafted items. Courtney is a local resident and lives in Port Huron. Make sure you stop and see Courtney when you are strolling through the West Quay lot and listening to the awesome bands that will be playing throughout the weekend!
We are so very excited to have CreepynCuteShop join Art on the River for their first year.
During the late summer of 2013, artisans Piper, Doreen and Bekka began designing and making original, hand-crafted creepy-n-cute zombie dolls. Because each doll is an original one-of-kind, it can be similarly reproduced by "custom order" only. Their shop creates commissioned requests for "portrait" and "specialty items". You can contact the shop owners for pricing and details. CreepynCuteShop can be reached at www.etsy.com/shop/CreepynCuteShop and www.facebook.com/creepyncuteshop.
CreepynCuteShop welcomed guest artisan, Dave Owens of Graven Image Metalworks. Graven Images offers high quality, 16 guage steel metal art finished in a variety of weather resistant paint, raw metal or rustic finishes. All pieces feature high quality welds to offer maximum strength and durability. Presently offered are "coffins" to house CreepynCuteShop dolls. However, there are many other designs to choose from or you can work directly with Dave to create your own custom image. Metalworks can be reached at www.etsy.com/shop/GravenImagesMetal or www.gravenimagesmetalworks.com.
We are very excited to welcome these fun artisans to Art on the River. You can find them right along Quay Street just down from the traveling Michigan Vietnam Veterans Memorial the entire weekend. We hope you will stop by and say hi to all the fun dolls.
