The Funky Ferndale Art Fair makes its annual return beginning Sept. 20, boasting that it’s “twice as funky as the average fine art fair.” With 120 juried pieces, the event sparks the imagination, while showcasing the creative talent of local artists. In addition to fine art, visitors can enjoy live bands and local restaurants, and visit the nearby DIY Street Fair. Here, a few participating artists.
