PELHAM, NY — Pelham Art Center’s annual artisan and craft exhibition is back and with some fresh changes! Craft Marketplace: An Exhibition and Sale of the Handmade will highlight a dynamic collection of affordable quality handmade works for sale, from Friday, November 18, 2016 through Saturday, December 30, 2016. Many skilled craft disciplines will be represented, including textile printing, silversmithing, glass blowing, and many more. Craft Marketplace will feature over 15 local and national artists who represent a range of traditional and modified artisan techniques, creating all one-of-a-kind items. Supporting both local economy and artists alike, the exhibition and sale is a creative alternative to commercial holiday shopping. A quirky illustration print, reclaimed wood lighting fixture or a pair of finely crafted metal earrings could be a unique and perfect gift for someone. The opening reception will include a free all-ages hands-on craft workshop on Friday, November 18 from 6:30-8:00pm. Pelham Art Center members will receive a 15% discount on all Craft Marketplace gallery sales during a special Members’ Holiday Sale, December 1-5. Craft Marketplace is curated by Kate Amato, Gallery and Special Events Manager.
