Artwork in many guises at Lakefront Art Fair

Jay Wennersten's amusing and artistic paintings got the once-over

The summer art festival season opened Saturday, with more than 100 artists and craftspeople displaying and selling their work at the Lakefront Art Fair at Festival Hall. The 29th annual event is a major fund-raiser for the Racine Montessori School.

Artworks on display ranged from hot-fired glass, to watercolors, photography, pottery -- and some other  items that caught our eye, pictured here.

  1. I love Pancake Day and the Fair. Great combination for a great cause. Finally, really good weather for the fair. Beautiful items for sale.
