American Craft Council Show: garden art
Garden art has made its way indoors!
The American Craft Council added a new category for its show this weekend at Baltimore's Convention Center: garden art.
Among the offerings are hand-woven outdoor rugs, metal sculpture, furniture, stoneware and fabric art inspired by nature.
"We're always looking out for designated categories of work that might peak the interest of our attendees," said spokeswoman Bernadette Boyle. "Many people only think of craft as something to adorn their bodies or the inside of their homes."
If you go, check out the work of Woodbine's Ed Kidera, who uses recycled oxygen cylinders and fire extinquishers to make his wonderful garden balles.
The other artists to look for are Joyce Barker-Schwartz, Sara Drower, Fumihiko Mochizuki, David Sleightholm and Virginia McKinney.
The show runs Friday 10-9, Saturday 10-6 and Sunday 10-6. Tickets are $15 for one day, $25 for two days and $30 for three days, but are discounted to $6 after 6 p.m. Friday.
