Kelvin Candie is an experimental artist influenced by music, album art and minimalism. "My creative process starts with revisiting ideas I had written down a day or a year before and meditate on the idea. Examining different versions of the idea before I sketch each version down and then I proceed to painting or doing a photoshoot of each version of the idea and pick out what i like the most. And that's what the rest of the world sees.” Kelvin joins us as an emerging artist (sponsored by TREKK Design Group, Inc and organized by J.R. Kortman Center for Design and Kortman Gallery). Shop his exciting prints in the Emerging Artist tent and his fashion in the artisan marketplace at GVAF on September 18 from 10 AM to 6 PM. @thehighnmighty @jrkortman @trekkdesign #gvaf2021

Kyle Kufrin of Rockford joins us this year in the Emerging Artist booth (organized by J.R. Kortman Center for Design and Kortman Gallery and sponsored by TREKK Design Group, LLC). Kyle is a Rockford native whose creative interests are centered in the world of pottery and ceramics. He also enjoys exploring the internet-flavored aesthetic known as Vaporwave. Together, these interests form a blending of classic ceramic technique and a dreamscape nostalgia of 1980’s-90’s capitalism, iconography, and societal fragmentation. Shop his ceramic pieces at Greenwich on Saturday, September 18th from 10 to 6. The emerging artist booth is located near the Point Bar and food trucks! @kufrinceramics @jrkortman @trekkdesign #gvaf2021

Thomas Trausch joins us from Woodstock, Illinois with his soft and beautiful watercolors. His work is “driven by the use of both light and color… driving forces that add energy to the work. I believe that this light can impart a spiritual quality that resonates with the viewer.” Find a work that speaks to you in his booth at Greenwich Village Art Fair on September 18th (10 to 6). #gvaf2021

Stephanie Tantillo (@satorifireglass) brings her glass and sterling silver jewelry to GVAF again this year from Marengo, Illinois. She describes her process: “Glass is cut, layered, fused, cooled, cold worked and fire polished. Sterling and fine silver are used to fashion the fused pieces into unique colorful jewelry. Each piece becomes a unique jewel reflecting luminescent colors in the light.” You’ve gotta see them in person at Greenwich on September 18th from 10 to 6! #gvaf2021 (Stephanie has also generously provided a piece in our art raffle! Stop by the info /raffle tent located at the entrance to the fair!)

Brett Whitacre specializes in reverse glass painting as well as large-scale murals. His imagery often has a retro feel which he attributes to growing up in the 70’s and 80’s and watching loads of TV and movies. Intense colors, gradients, and an element of whimsy are typical of Brett’s aesthetic. You may have seen his work around the area in one of his many murals (he did the gorgeous graphic wall in the Studio at Rockford Art Museum!). Shop his booth at Greenwich on September 18th, 10 AM to 6 PM. @brettwhitacreart #gvaf2021
