When the doors open for the 19th annual Westchester Fine Craft Show Oct. 12, discerning collectors – and enthusiastic shoppers – will find an array of couture fashion, jewelry, furniture and decorative accessories on display by more than 100 artisans from across the nation.
The juried showcase, which will run Oct. 12-14 at the Westchester County Center in White Plains, will again spotlight the best of contemporary American art and design.
“We’re always looking for the best artists in the country,” says Elizabeth Kubie, director of Crafts America, the Greens Farms-based organization that presents the show.
Works of art will represent a variety of media, including wood, metal, glass, paper, leather, decorative fibers, clay and ceramics.
The show, which has a strong local following, is known for presenting one-of-a-kind creations that reflect the finest technical skills, an unwavering quality of workmanship and a strong and original sense of design.
This year, a special “Meet the Artists Show Preview” will be held from 8:30 to 11 a.m. Oct. 12. Proceeds from the sneak peek will benefit the Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy Program at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla. Tickets are $40, with all proceeds going directly to the program.
The show will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 12; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 13; and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 14. Admission is $12, $11 for senior citizens and free for children under age 12. Please note: Payment on site is by cash only.
