Davya Cohen.
The wine bottles themselves,
including samples from kosher
products, provide her artistic out-
let. She's painted many to show
and sell at Art Over The Inter-
state, a juried art fair that will
include live bands, ethnic foods
and activities for the kids this
weekend at Oak Park's Rothstein
Park.
Cohen will be joined by artists
from across the state as they
showcase fine art and craft me-
dia including paintings, ceram-
ics, jewelry and dolls. All the
works were juried by the Oak
Park Arts and Cultural Corn-
mission.
"This is a new fair, and my art
is new," Cohen explains about
her wine, perfume and water bot-
tles enhanced by contemporary
designs. "I call my art funky be-
cause it's different."
Cohen, an art teacher who has
worked with colored pencils and
has a still life in the book Best of
Colored Pencil III, also will bring
painted canvas rugs meant for
wall display to the fair.
The fair, which celebrates
Michigan Month, has invited a
variety of musical groups to
round out the entertainment.
While the event opens with the
Multi-Ethnic Youth Orchestra
playing jazz, traditional Jewish
music also will be part of the pro-
gram. The klezmer band ABZ
will see to that.
'We've been asked to play Jew-
ish ethnic music, and that's fine
with us," said Abraham Ben
Zeev, who is at the keyboard and
will be performing with drummer
Dave Taylor, bassist Ron Rodger-
son and horn player Russ Miller.
