Add to Calendar 22-11-2013 04-01-2014 15 CRAFT-TASTIC: An Exhibition and Sale of the Handmade 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 Nov. 22, 2013 through Jan. 4, 2014. 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. Sculptural and functional, both thrown and slip cast, ceramics from as far away as Colorado and as close as New Rochelle will be shown. 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 (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.
