WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The work of 40 local artists will be on display at the 2013 "Art on the Wabash" festival. The local artists' fair is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Tapawingo Park in West Lafayette.
The fair is open to artists in Benton, Boone, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Fountain, Howard, Jasper, Montgomery, Newton, Pulaski, Tippecanoe, Tipton, Warren and White counties.
Admission to the festival is free. In addition to the artwork, you'll be able to enjoy listening to live music and a wine garden.
Artist Craig Whitten said this is his fifth year participating and he loves the sense of community artists have when they gather for this annual festival. It's the first year of being involved for artist Andrea Wellnitz, although she said she has attended in the past. She hopes to get more exposure for her fiber artwork. Whitten works with photography and landscapes.
The fair is presented by the City of West Lafayette, West Lafayette Parks & Recreation Department and Morton Community Center with technical assistance from Tippecanoe Arts Federation and sponsorship funding from KitchenArt, The Store for Cooks.
