MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- For the 47th year, Milwaukee is hosting the Morning Glory Art Fair. One hundred and thirty artists and craftsmen from around the country will pack the Deer District to sell their specialty items-- from jewelry to woodworking, photography, fiber art and much more. You can find just about every type of medium at the fair.
"This is a wonderful place for people to come and explore the possibilities of art," said Jean Wells, the President, Wisconsin Craft.
It is one of the largest juried art fairs in the Midwest. Each artist is selected because of their quality and talents.
"I try to make art on anything I can," said Josseline Castillo. Castillo uses paint and resin to add a pop of color to bowls and cutting boards. "I also have tables coffee tables and all that, kind of different things."
Jan Raven is a jeweler who comes from Waukesha to sell at the fair.
"This right here is called Viking knitting. It's a technique that dates to the Viking era, and I always have a demonstration piece in my booth."
All of the artists welcome people to come look and ask questions, and you just might find your next favorite piece of art.
