If you are planning on a winter weekend getaway to Asheville on December 1st and 2nd, don’t forget to put The Big Crafty on your must-visit list! Voted Western NC’s favorite art event for nearly a decade, The Big Crafty celebrates the beauty of a human-scale economy and community-building, soul-enriching creative work. It features the work of 150 carefully-selected artists, makers and crafters who embody the dynamism of the independent creative community.
A super hip pop-up craft market hosted by my favorite brewery, Trophy on Maywood, and near home? I can’t find a reason to say no to this awesome combination! This year, more than ever, it is important to shop locally for your holiday gifts. Our state’s economy has been hit hard by hurricanes and tropical storms, especially on the coast . I am grateful that Raleigh was not affected to that degree this year. Spending your money locally – whether it’s a coffee shop, hardware store, or a local artist, it all helps to keep your money in our community and in our state.
Now in its 54th year, Craft + Design is a museum-quality show that has garnered a reputation for showcasing the finest in contemporary craft. Awards are presented in ceramics, precious metals, glass, wood and recycled materials, contemporary design, innovative use of traditional craft materials and fiber. We also honor artists with the New Artist Award and the Best Booth Design Award. Last year’s Elisabeth Scott Bocock Best in Show Award went to glass artist Robin Kittleson.
The 54th annual event will take place November 16-18, 2018 at Main Street Station’s newly renovated train shed.
You’ll find unique works of art and fine craft from more than 100 contemporary fine craft artists who have travelled from across North Carolina and the U.S. to the heart of downtown Raleigh.
Mark your calendars for our 2018 Carolina Artisan Craft Market, November 2 – 4, in the Raleigh Convention Center Exhibit Hall C!
CenterFest 2018, in the heart of Downtown Durham!
Since 1974, the Durham Arts Council has brought the Durham community together with CenterFest. As Durham’s signature arts festival, CenterFest showcases juried visual artists from near and far, and fills multiple stages with music, dance, and more from local performers. Serious art shoppers will be dazzled by world-class ceramics, paintings, jewelry, fiber art, woodwork, and everything in between – much of it from Durham and Triangle-based creators.
Singers, dance troupes, choirs, bands, jugglers, magicians, and performers of every stripe will provide continuous entertainment throughout the weekend. Kids will have a blast at the Creative Kids Zone, food vendors will keep guests fueled for fun, and Durham’s inspiring nonprofit and government services sector will be on hand connecting with the community they serve. It all takes place in the heart of Durham’s historic downtown, a hub of local businesses and foodie culture that elevates the visitor experience!
