“GOODS IN THE WOODS”
A FINE ARTS & CRAFTS MARKET TO BE HELD AT
What? The second annual artisans market featuring handmade products, fine arts, food, live music, and a kid’s crafting tent. This all-day artisan market and gift fair is scheduled strategically two weeks before Mother’s Day. All of the products for sale will be handmade and original. Craft and art activities for young people will be offered, and there will be live music and excellent food. An indoor exhibit space will feature artists selling their wares.
When? 10am-5pm, Saturday April 30, 2011
Who? The work of many artists and artisans from the mid-atlantic region will be featured, including Ritchie Miller, Gary Carver, Ruth Ostrander, Kim Selig and Stephani Nodalski. Plein Air painters will be scattered through the woods, and artisans of ceramics, textiles, creative housewares, hula-hoops, and environmentally friendly crafts will set up in the field.
Why? This family-friendly arts extravaganza is an excellent opportunity to explore and enjoy the natural and architectural beauty of the 12 acre, tree-covered campus of Fairhaven School with its wooded pathways, playground, and peaceful stream while shopping for Mother’s Day. Proceeds from Goods in the Woods will be used for the school’s tuition assistance fund and capital improvements fund.
Where? Fairhaven School, 17900 Queen Anne Rd. Upper Marlboro, MD 20774.
