Oak Creek Arts and Crafts Shows offer fun, festive, outdoor events ongoing throughout the year where you can speak directly to the local artists that make their wares. From pottery and photography to American Indian jewelry, home décor, and glassware, the shows founder and director Marlo Johnson creates an interactive experience not just sales and retail – “The face to face interaction at these art shows is different than what we are experiencing in the digital world,” Marlo said, “People are craving the social aspect of my shows and meeting the people behind the products.” In addition to fine arts and crafts, the shows are spattered with food vendors, tarot card reading, live music, palmistry, and self-care products. These shows are more like festivals, not simply art shows!
