Among returning artisans in the 2019 show is Heather Kidson of Westwood, MA. She fell in love with painting on silk while in art college and has never looked back. Her focus is to enhance lives by creating designs of beautiful color and composition. Each piece is an original painting on silk. She offers wearable art with a touch of whimsy. Sue McFarland of Conway, MA is a felt maker and produces both functional accessories, sculptural and hanging work. Margie and Bill Lombard of Saratoga Springs, NY showcased their 60 years of combined metal-smithing offering fine crafted jewelry. Thom Cassotta of Northampton, MA offers original textural work he considers to be a form of “contemporary Folk Art”. The work began with a combination of acrylic paint and textural papers, using sponge, stipple brush, lace tissue paper, crackle paint and miscellaneous findings. He cuts and arranges the papers before applying an acrylic gel. No two works are alike.
