At The Barn Sale in Hamden, Volunteers Keep on Dealing

At The Barn Sale in Hamden, Volunteers Keep on Dealing

Perhaps the reason The Barn Sale has endured for a half-century is that there’s no other place quite like it. The prices are reasonable for such a wide array of items. Besides, customers can feel good about supporting a place that donates 50 percent of its proceeds to local charities such as the Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport and the Community Soup Kitchen in New Haven.

New Luxury Guesthouse Tall Tales Sprouts up at Saybrook Point Inn & Spa

The original plan was for the new, six-room boutique “beach house” in Old Saybrook to be a bit more diminutive than the elegant Three Stories next door. But flood elevations kept rising, necessitating engineering changes that resulted in a taller-than-expected building.

Description

CRAFT-TASTIC: An Exhibition and Sale of the Handmade

Free opening reception and all-age art workshop:

Friday, November 22, 6:30-8:00pm

15% Member Discount Sale:

December 3 – December 8, 2013

A collection of the hand-made by local, national and international crafts artists will be for sale in time for the holiday season at Pelham Art Center’s annual exhibition, Craft-Tastic. The exhibition will run from November 22, 2013 through January 4, 2014 with an opening reception and all age hands-on workshop on Friday, November 22 from 6:30-8:00pm. For one week only, Pelham Art Center members receive a 15% discount on all Craft-Tastic gallery sales during a special Members’ Holiday Sale, December  3 – December 8.  Anyone can become a member of Pelham Art Center at any time. This year’s exhibition will feature functional, wearable and decorative crafts, ranging in price, scale and materials by over 20 artists. 

Crafts from the United States will include beautiful and unique jewelry and metal work from Brooklyn, Chicago and nearby Tarrytown.  Felted hats and fascinators will be for sale by a local Pelham milliner. While sculptural and functional, both thrown and slip cast, ceramics will be coming in from as far away as Colorado and as close as New Rochelle. Pelham Art Center will also be exhibiting original glass work, hand sewn and knitted items, furniture, and sculptural objects. 

Zori slippers, felt flowers, rubber band bracelets and recycled plastic bags purses, all made in Cambodia, will be on sale as a fundraiser for the Somaly Mam Foundation (www.somaly.org), a nonprofit organization committed to ending modern slavery and empowering its survivors as part of the solution. Pelham Art Center is also supporting Fair Trade felted crafts made by women entrepreneurs located in Central Asia. With the help of US-based partnerships, the sale of these hand-felted ornaments, bowls and rugs assist in bringing economic sustainability to their communities.

Craft-Tastic exposes viewers to the vibrant world of the hand-made while expanding upon the vocabulary of traditional craft materials and techniques. The exhibition also touches on the idea of how craft continues to be a viable source of income for artists and communities in addition to a method of artistic expression throughout the world. Craft-Tastic is curated by Gail Heidel.

Cheryl Bryant (NJ), Andrew Coombs (SC), Craftspring (Fair Trade), Erin S. Daily (NY), Stephen Eakin (NY), Heather Mae Erickson (CO), Doug Frati (ME), MaryLouise Gladstone (NY), Layne Gregory (ME) , Kathryn Fenstermaker (TN), Mamie Kanfer (NY), Maia Leppo (NY), Leigh Taylor Mickelson (NY),  Sana Musasama (NY), Susan Saas (NY), Amy Santoferraro (KS), Leslie Silk-Champagne (NH), Kristi Sword (NY), Judith Weber (NY), Brian Weissman (NY)
