Annual indoor art fair scheduled at Crossings

Crossings at Carnegie will hold its annual Artists Clearing House indoor art fair April 27-29.

Participating artists will include local residents:

Amy Giannini of Zumbrota. She applies needle-felted embellishments to sweaters, vests and jackets, and creates astonishing hand-crafted beaded silver jewelry that incorporates fiber and art glass elements. She will demonstrate needle-felting during fair hours on Sunday.

Becky Jokela of Zumbrota. She creates pastel paintings that capture the richness of the natural world. On that Sunday, she will demonstrate how she works with pastels.

Bill Shain of Pine Island. He is an airbrush artist whose works are mainly acrylic or water-based paints on paper, canvas and hardboard. His artistic inspiration comes from surrealist artists like H.R. Giger, Picasso, and Salvador Dali.

Hours are 4 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. A wine tasting starts at 5:30 p.m. Friday.

Artists will be on hand to answer questions and describe the inspiration behind each piece. Crossings is located at 320 East Ave., Zumbrota.
