The Gold Coast Art Fair and the Port Clinton Art Festival are both winners in the 7th annual “America’s Best Art Fair Awards” competition. Named as one of the “Best Overall Art Fairs”, the survey recognized Gold Coast Art Fair and the Port Clinton Art Festival as two of the finest juried art fairs in the country.
Sponsored by ArtFairCalendar.com, the #1 website for art fair event listings, the 2018 online survey opened voting beyond the traditional “art fair insiders” such as artists and show staff to focus on voting by art fair patrons, fine art collectors and the public that attends art shows and festivals nationwide.
“The Gold Coast Art Fair and the Port Clinton Art Festival have always been popular among art fair lovers in the Chicagoland area, but our 4th annual national Best Art Fairs Awards survey proves that both art collectors and artists nationwide love it, too,” said Connie Mettler, Publisher of ArtFairCalendar.com. “We’re happy to give a “Best Overall Art Fair Award to both the Gold Coast Art Fair and the Port Clinton Art Festival today.”
“We’re very pleased at this recognition of both the Gold Coast Art Fair and the Port Clinton Art Festival by ArtFairCalendar.com’s “Best Art Fair Awards,” said Amy Amdur. “We have a great team of staff and volunteers who work hard every year to produce this important cultural event that brings so much art, business, and cultural activity to the Chicago and Highland Park communities.”
