Artist Application

We are pleased to welcome Fine & Fresh art where artists and makers representing both fine and curated handmade indie art are welcome. Apply online the 2017 event!

In Quincy, our community prides itself on hospitality, and we believe there is no better example of our warmth than how we treat our exhibiting artists. We try to think of everything; assistance unloading, water delivered to your booth, free gourmet coffee and treats in the morning, booth sitters for meal and bathroom breaks. Our volunteers bend over backwards to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Beyond this kindness, we work tirelessly to promote the Faire in the Quincy region and beyond to bring in a large crowd to purchase your art. We fund raise constantly to grow our awards and increase the amount of Art Fare ($$) in people's hands. We just know you love our Faire as much as we do.

2016 Art Faire Judge - Peg Fetter

Peg Fetter

Peg Fetter

A native Charlestonian (Sullivan’s Island), Peg Fetter moved to St. Louis to attend Washington University to study metalsmithing with Heikki Seppa. She received her MFA from Washington University and her BFA from Winthrop University in Rock Hill S.C. Because of her love of the medium, she teaches metalsmithing at several institutions: Craft Alliance, St. Louis University, and Fontbonne University, where she started the small metals/metalsmithing program and was the 2010 adjunct instructor of the year. Fetter also teaches workshops around the country focusing on a technique utilizing steel and precious metal. Fetter’s work combines the rawness of steel with the elegance of gold; the juxtaposition of the two elements creates the perfect foil. The jewelry looks delicate but is very strong because of the industrial materials.
