The Art of Craft


The above is my favorite picture taken at Craft & Craft at the Everson Museum of Art.  Taken by my friend Doug from that perch/Juliet balcony of the third gallery upstairs.


It was such a great experience selling artwork at the Everson!  My set up was right in front of the spiral staircase.

The amazing architect I.M. Pei designed the building.  He also designed the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame –

and the glass pyramid entrance to The Louvre.

It was a beautiful day on Thursday and one that I will never forget.  I have always dreamed about doing something like this and so, it was a dream come true.  Loved every minute of it!


Thank you to all who attended including my Facebook friends, besties and loved ones.  I’m also so grateful to the staff of the Everson who helped me with the set up.  Everything was so well organized and it was so much fun.


And a special thank you goes out to my mother who came with me (we got there at 3 pm) and was my greatest supporter!  I didn’t get her home until 8:30ish so it was a long day.  She is a jewelry designer and had a few baubles for sale as well.


This event was meant as a kick off to the Downtown Syracuse Arts & Crafts  Festival.



The Arts & Crafts Festival continues today until 6 pm, so if you are a local, please get down there and support the arts.  So many talented people to discover!

  1. Thanks, Mark! It was the best! Such an amazing day. Next up for me is a customer appreciation day at Natur-Tyme – on August 15th. Not sure what I’m doing yet. Some type of demo? And also not sure of the times. I will let you know!
