Old Deerfield and more!

This weekend I'll be at one of the areas oldest shows, the Old Deerfield Fall Art and Craft Festival. Not only are their tons of interesting vendors, many of whom I've been seen at other shows this year, but they are doing wine and cheese tasting, scarecrows and artist demos. Check out their website here and print an entrance coupon.

Also coming up next weekend is the Amherst Apple Harvest Festival on Saturday the 25th on the Amherst Common. This was a great show last year, and promises to be much fun again this year.

Complimentary Contrast: Works by Katie Richardson and Joshua Primmer will open at North Adams Artist Co-op Gallery on October 28, 5-8. The show will be up from October 27 to November 28, and will feature many new sculptural pieces by both artists. Make sure to check out MASS MOCA when you come up to see the show, and enjoy fall in the beautiful Berkshires.

Last but not least, if you are itching to take a beadmaking class or workshop, I'll be teaching an intro workshop at Bisque, Beads and Beyond in Pittsfield on September 26. Last I heard there were still 2 spots available for the morning session. If that's too far for you to travel, let me know if you'd like to join a class in Northampton next time I run one, or if you'd like to set up private instruction or a home workshop.
