Organizers announced the selection of artists whose work will be on display and for sale at the 17th annual Ford Arts, Beats & Eats presented by FirstMerit Bank on Labor Day weekend, Aug. 29 - Sept. 1 in Royal Oak.
 
As one of the nation’s premier juried art shows, the Juried Fine Art Show again will be a highlight of this year’s festival, with top artists from across the continent vying for cash awards totaling $7,500. It will showcase original art in a variety of media, including ceramics, digital art, drawing, fabric/fiber/leather, glass, graphics/printmaking, jewelry, metal, mixed media 2D, mixed media 3D, painting, photography, sculpture, and wood.  Artists will come from all over North America, including Canada and Mexico, to display, share and sell their work. Festival patrons have the opportunity to explore works at more than 135 booth spaces.

Artists in attendance will include some of the finest in their respective media. Returning visitors will recognize the hot glass necklaces and sculptural work of Denise Houck of Chickadee Studios in Eaton Rapids, Michigan. Another Michigan resident and new this year is Jennie Burt. Burt’s surreal paintings made of ground automobile aluminum paint depicting an intensely colored world of whales, coral and mermaids are not to be missed! The newest artist, and also from Michigan, Alec LaCasse, has been creating fine woodcarvings since he was 12 years old. His talent has carried into his adulthood, as the hand-carved faces have become more striking every year. These artists and many others will amaze and delight art enthusiasts of all tastes and backgrounds.


CULTURAL ACTIVITIES
An eclectic display of classical, multi-cultural acts will once again take place on two stages: the FirstMerit Bank International Stage and DIA Acoustic/Cultural Stage. The stellar lineup of cultural programming offered at this year’s festival includes performances from around the world in the form of chamber music with ensembles presented from Detroit Chamber Winds and Strings Duo; the fiery, intense flamenco dancing of La Chispa & Company; the gorgeous Indian costumes and dance from Nadanta; the pounding rhythms of Raion Taiko Japanese Drums; “Raga” classical Indian music from the  Kasturi Paigude troupe; the enduring sounds of historical Jewish music from KidzKlez of Michigan and the upbeat folk music of Raices Mexicanas de Detroit.

Don’t miss the third annual Deaf Arts Festival, sponsored by Ford, featuring the work of a number of outstanding artists that are deaf and hard of hearing, which will be located on East 7th St., between Washington Ave. and Center St.

A new “artistic” partnership this year between Ford Arts, Beats & Eats and the City of Royal Oak will feature the municipality’s new logo. Royal Oak graphic artist Tim Gralewski will incorporate the new City of Royal Oak logo into one of his best prints which will be available for purchase at the festival.  All proceeds from the sale of the print will go to Royal Oak Commission for the Arts.
