East Grand Rapids Reeds Lake Clothesline Arts Fair This Saturday

This is one art fair you do not want to miss.  It's the perfect setting just off of Reeds Lake, with lots of bars and restaurants close by.  You'll find something for all prices plus you always get a nice variety of art.  There are wood works, pottery, oil paintings, watercolors, textiles, jewelry and everything else in between.  Another perk is you'll have the opportunity to meet the artists and talk to them about the pieces you purchase.
