BIRMINGHAM — The Guild of Artists and Artisans and the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center will once again hold Art Birmingham in Shain Park 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sunday Mother’s Day weekend, May 13 and 14.

Approximately 150 jury-selected artists will be selling fine art pieces such as jewelry, ceramics, paintings, glass, photography, fiber and more. The BBAC’s “Art for All” vision is supported by this event.

Children will also have the opportunity to enjoy this event at the children’s art activity tent. There will be various food vendors for all to enjoy as they are strolling the fair.

Many art vendors will be returning, such as jeweler Winnie Chai, sculptor Laura Teste, illustration and printmaking couple Christina and Dennis Jacobs, and the featured artist-painter Randi Ford. New artists who will be joining the fair include leather artist Dominique Hopf, and ceramicists Nancy and Joseph Grimsley.

Art Birmingham is free for the public to attend. Annually, it attracts approximately 80,000 fairgoers.
