ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ – The Atlantic Highlands Arts Council is presenting an Affordable Fine Crafts Fair on Saturday and Sunday, November 14 and 15, from 11 AM to 4 PM at the Arts Corner, 135 First Ave., Atlantic Highlands. Just in time for holiday shopping, fine craftspeople will show and sell a variety of hand-crafted items in a warm, friendly and artistic atmosphere. Admission is free.
Local artists Anne Milling, Judy Radziwanowski will present jewelry, Gerda Liebman and Susan Bulavinitz will show knit and crochet items, and Barbara Lipton will offer one-of-a-kind felted and nuno felted scarves. Artists also include Phyllis Biondolillo, Renata English, Pam Gosner, Miriam Seiden, Suzanne Zann, Angeliki Morfogen, Stacy Pritchard and Randi Brauner. In addition, imaginative and exciting artists from Oasis, a local organization working with people in the autistic spectrum, and from Camp Happiness of the NJ Blind Citizens Ass’n, will present their creative work.
“These outstanding craftspeople have been selected for their design and workmanship, as well as for the affordability and accessibility of their creations,” says event chair Barbara Lipton. “This is the third time that we are highlighting fine crafts in our programs and we hope that we can continue to both encourage artists and appeal to local audiences in this way in the future.”
The Affordable Crafts event on November 14 and 15, and an Art Show and Sale organized by the Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club also on Sunday, November 15, will both showcase the town of Atlantic Highlands as the place to be for shoppers and art lovers!
Proceeds from the Affordable Fine Crafts Sale will help to support the Atlantic Highlands Arts Council in its mission “to build community through the arts.” For more information, please visit www.aharts.org or [email protected], or contact Barbara Lipton through the Arts Council.
