CALUMET -- Copper Country Associated Artists (CCAA) will host the Eagle Harbor Art Fair from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday, Aug. 9, and from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 10, in Eagle Harbor, Mich.  CCAA has been hosting the fair for more than 50 years, and the 2014 Fair will feature 60 artist vendors selling their wares -- photography, pottery, jewelry, painting, woodworking and more.

Miriam Pickens, ceramic artist and photographer, will be the featured artist at this year's Fair. The event takes place in a large park near St. Peter's by the Sea church.

"I'll be in the church basement with all my wares, underglazing a plate," Pickens notes.*

Goodies to eat are provided by Eagle Harbor Township to raise money for various projects. The annual Eagle Harbor Art Fair is an enjoyable family event -- free and open to the public. Several motels, a swimming beach and restaurants can be found in Eagle Harbor as well as a few miles up or down the road in Eagle River or Copper Harbor.

Editor's Note: Miriam Pickens also takes beautiful photos of butterflies. Visit her Facebook page to learn more.
