It’s Craft-Tastic!

First, sorry for the long absence. My website and blog have been temperamental lately, and going straight to the blog (musings) still doesn’t work. We’re still fiddling around, but hopefully it will only get better from here.

More importantly, I am pleased to say that I was invited to take part in this year’s Craft-Tastic exhibit at Pelham Art Center in Pelham, NY! Check out all the info below, and if you’re in the area, or know someone who is, plan stop by. I’ve sent pieces from my Americana, Rooted, and Feisty Femmes series and I really hope that they all find new homes.

A dynamic collection of quality handmade work will be on display and for sale, at the Pelham Art Center’s annual exhibition, Craft-Tastic, from Friday, November 13, 2015 to Saturday, January 2, 2016. Blown glass, woodwork, and dyed leather creations will be included among the many skilled craft disciplines. Craft-Tastic will feature 22 local and national artists who represent a range of traditional and modified craft techniques, creating all one-of-a-kind items. Supporting both local economy and artisans alike, the exhibition is a positive alternative to commercial holiday shopping. A hand-cut paper collage print, a wood and stone necklace or a naturally dyed silk scarf could be a unique and perfect gift for someone special.

The opening reception will include a free all-ages hands-on craft workshop on Friday, November 13 from 6:30-8:00pm. Pelham Art Center members will receive a 15% discount on all Craft-Tastic gallery sales during a special Members’ Holiday Sale, December 1-5. Anyone can become a member of Pelham Art Center at any time.

Craft-Tastic is curated by Kate Amato, the Gallery and Public Program Manager at Pelham Art Center and Gail Heidel.
