Northwest Metro Artists Gather at Uptown Art Fair
The prestigious Uptown Art Fair celebrates art and showcases the work of some of the most interesting artists in the nation. Since 1964, festival organizers wanted to increase awareness of the arts while raising money for Uptown projects. The event has grown and changed, but the core mission remains the same.
The Uptown Art Fair Takes Place August 3-5
This year the fair includes about 350 artists from across the United States. Selection is very competitive, but six local artists proudly represent the northwest metro. Their artwork ranges from paintings to jewelry.
