Among the 200 artists exhibiting at the Upper Arlington Labor Day Arts Festival will be six in the Emerging Artist Tent, intended to provide a supportive atmosphere for artists beginning their careers as festival artists.

Located on the east side of the festival grounds (Northam Park), this year's Emerging Artists Tent features artwork from six different central Ohio emerging artists with a wide range of talent:

ã Creating Green, nouveau inspired accessories for ladies, children and babies from recycled clothing, fiber artist Natalee Brown uses wet felting, needle felting, hand-sewn appliqué, and hand-forged metal beading to make each piece original and one-of-a-kind.

ã Mixed Media 2D artist Brittany Stenger uses a novel process to create multi-dimensional looks for photographs of recognizable images.

ã Kate Morgan uses traditional and non-traditional printmaking and painting techniques to create mixed media 2D pieces incorporating the feminine figure with references to the historical and traditional themes and icons of women.

ã The Guitar House Workshop designs and builds custom fretted guitars and mandolins. Fine tone woods are cut, shaped, glued, sanded, and finished using traditional and contemporary woodworking techniques to create a lasting, one-of-a-kind musical instrument.

ã Painter Jacquie Clark uses watercolor to create joyful compositions of animals and everyday scenes.

ã Ann Lavelle Kozliner photographs exotic rainforests, island sunsets, flowers and butterflies from Costa Rica and the Virgin Islands.

The UA Labor Day Arts Festival is open to the public free of charge at Northam Park from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 6.
