Center for the Creative Arts in Yorklyn plans Artisan Show

Delaware News Desk
A scene from the 2019 Artisan Show at the Center for the Creative Arts in Yorklyn. This year's show will be Nov. 21 and 22.

The Center for the Creative Arts in Yorklyn transforms into a marketplace of fine handcrafted gifts just in time for the holidays during the annual Artisan Show Saturday, Nov. 21 and Sunday, Nov. 22.

Admission is $5, good for both days. CCArts members and children 10 and under are free.

“We are pleased to be continuing our annual tradition this year,” said Melissa Paolercio, CCArts executive director. “We have accepted fewer artists than in past years and instituted timed ticketing to ensure proper social distancing and a safe experience for all involved. But walkups are still welcome. This has been a very hard year for all of us but we hope that people can find a little joy in purchasing the perfect handmade gift for someone they love and supporting our local artists who have been greatly affected this year."

Twenty-two artists -- the majority Delaware-based artists -- will be selling handmade fine art and crafts including ceramics, jewelry, felting, turned wood, collage, leatherwork, paper crafts, painting and more.

A raffle table with donated handcrafted items will help raise money for CCArts.

Olé Tapas Food Truck will be on site both days, and CCArts will have light refreshments and beverages for sale.

Artists include: Elisabeth Bard, Jill Beard (Living in Glass Houses), Zachary Bloom (Zachary Bloom Jewelry Designs), John Bragger (Classic Elegance, LLC), Sarah Chase Dressler (ToadstoolsNTreestump), Sue Ann Cox (The Fairy Potter), Dina du Pont (Illustrations by Dina du Pont), Christina Fabris (Iris and Callisto’s Apiary), Julie Hazzard (A Peace of Color, LLC), Gilda Jennings (GCJ Uniques), Bethann C. Kelleher (BBK Ceramics), Brenda Kingham, William S. Konowitz (Pine Valley Designs), Greg Losco (Losco Glass, LLC), Kelly Martin (Paper Hibiscus), Annachristina Meckl, Jennifer Moon-Child (Moon-Child Wood Craft), Stephanie Przybylek (Creative Animal), Chris Quimby, Brady Shuert (Hope’s Caramels), John A.
