Townies and tourists alike are familiar with the eclectic selection of vendors, and often sweltering heat, that is the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair. Despite the weather conditions, The Fair(s) are a fantastic time for both newcomers and veterans. The Art Fair has selected ceramic artist Debo Groover,  who has a fondness for colorful and patterned sheets of clay, as this year’s  featured artist.  Sarah Goodyear, an acrylic painter who imparts unusual colors and textures to otherwise realistic forms of people and landscape, is the independent  Guild of Artisans and Artists’ pick for 2017. Other artists to look for are  Harmony Hollow Bell Works,  displaying intricate bronze windbells, and R.L Alexander with meditations on children’s storybook paintings.
