ABOUT OUR ARTISTS:

We are featuring the artwork of several talented makers, including Jack and his mom Maureen Adams. Shop their tie dyed and driftwood creations, as well as some funky jewelry, wind chimes and more! Jack and Maureen will also offer you the chance to buy and make your own tie dyed shirt at their Make & Take station.

Calina Krugler of Just Plain Calina is coming too, with her super cool assortment of one of a kind acrylic fluid art done on a wide variety of surfaces. From 1-4, stop by Calina’s work station to create your own project using a tile or a record album – or bring your own material, such as a canvas or anything else you’d like to use. Anything you create with Calina won’t be dry enough to take home on Sunday, so we’ll keep it at the Box Factory for you and you can come back and pick it up the following week.

We’re so happy that Maria Vettraino of Mia Maria Candle Studio will be on hand as well! Maria offers all natural candles.

Our last artisan vendor is Nikki Gauthier of She Looks Designs. Nikki (who’s also our Events & Programs Coordinator here at the Box) will be set up with her paintings.

ABOUT OUR MUSICIANS:

JACK ADAMS / ST. JOE JACK

Some say you can hear his guitar strumming all the way from the West Coast…Of Michigan! Singing like it’s from the heart, Jack Adams pours his excitement and craziness into his music to create an up-beat experience that you wouldn’t want to miss.
