From October 12 through the 14, the 19TH ANNUAL JURIED WESTCHESTER FINE CRAFT SHOW will return to the Westchester County Center bringing unique and high style objects of art to the NYC/Westchester area. This is one of those special shows that area residents look forward to each year. The pleasures of wearing and accessorizing with beautiful handmade objects will be vividly apparent as 100 of America’s best contemporary artists exhibit their incredible work at this prestigious juried showcase and sale. Predominately one-of-a-kind, all handmade objects made from wood, metal, glass, paper, leather, decorative fiber, clay and ceramics; the artists’ work will include furniture, pieces for tabletop and interior accents, exquisite jewelry, and unique designer fashion.
Two of the artists participating this year were featured in the White House Collection of American Craft: Cliff Lee, bringing exquisitely hand carved fine porcelain pieces, and Peter Petrochko with masterfully lathe turned, pieced and carved vessels and sculptures in wood. Many other participating artists are represented in important corporate and private collections, as well as in major museums such as: Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, The Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, New York’s Museum of Art and Design, The Corning Museum of Glass, and more.
A private Preview Benefit will be held Friday, Oct 12 at 8:30-11 AM, for the Art Therapy Program at the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center. Attendees will be able to meet the artists, view and purchase work ahead of the opening of the show to the public; it is an ideal pre-purchasing opportunity for Interior Designers and collectors of fine American craft. All guests will be eligible for door prizes from many sponsors including Eileen Fisher and Morton’s The Steakhouse. The Preview tickets are $40 and available only at www.westchestercraftshow.com
