FINE ART/FINE CRAFT AWARDS 2017

Each year the Lakeshore Art Festival awards $3,000 in cash prizes to our Fine Art/Fine Craft exhibitors. A complete list of past winners is availble at the bottom of this page.

During the show, our exhibitors will be juried by professional artist and Grand Valley State University professor, Renee Zettle-Sterling. Rennee received her MFA in Sculpture and her MA in Metalsmithing from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. She has exhibited and lectured her work nationally and internationally, and she has been featured in many publications.
