Mark Wylie, the Presenting Sponsor for the next 5 art fairs, reflects on his support of this event. "The Art Fair is a local treasure. It brings a diverse group of people together in celebration of the arts, providing an opportunity for artists to showcase their talents and for neighbors to gather in a fun, enriching environment. It brings dollars to local businesses, helping to strengthen our community. We look forward to the Art Fair weekend every year and are grateful to be able to help keep this tradition going," said Wylie. Sustaining sponsorships allow for continuous resources for future planning and development. The EAC has provided exhibitions, art education programs, and events for the past 21 years and continues to grow as a cultural center.

Many new artists have applied this year making the jury process tough and we are excited for the new ideas our board members are planning for onsite entertainment. Details coming soon about the VIP party for sponsors, Artini in the main tent, lists of artists, food vendors and the stage lineup. Again, our Mystery Box committee will be looking for donations for the boxes full of fun and craft ideas that kids love. There are so many elements to the art fair and so many ways to support it.
