Annual Christmas Craft and Art Show, Dec. 3.

THIRD ANNUAL CHRISTMAS CRAFT SHOW December 3, 2011 at the Fruita Community Center, 10am to 4:00pm. Click here for the application and additional information.
With all kinds of one of a kind items for sale by local craft and artisans, this is one event you don't want to miss. Wonderful ceramics, both functional and artistic, special silk scarves painted individually, books by a local author, home-sewn, one of a kind gifts and so much more, all at the new Fruita Community and Fitness Center, are there for everyone to enjoy and put under the tree.
Several of the artists were kind enough to lend photos for this blog. So, meet Sarah Dargan and Mary Hertert.
Mary hails from Alaska where she founded an artists' coop. She specializes in wonderful, original fabric painting. She still manages to find time for her outdoor passions, rafting, hiking and mountain biking.
Sarah earned her Bachelor of fine Arts from the University of Montana. Her first two years changed her art choice from painting to ceramics, thanks to her art professor at North Western College in Wyoming. Her goal now is to earn her MFA at LSU. 
Here Sarah shows the many pieces she will
put in the bisque fire.
After the bisque fire, the works will be glazed
and put for sale Dec. 3.  More of Sarah's works
will be for sale at Colorado Mesa University
Student Center later on in the month.

Mary shows several of her one of a kind silk
scarves she hand paints.

Mary Hertert's business posters shows her web
address so you  can explore her faber art.
Steve and Denise Hight will autograph copies of
their book about Fruita at this event. These books
make special gifts with the history one finds via the wonderful historical photos published.
