There will be an artist talk at 5pm.

Crafts Fair @ Art House

From the always artsy Zach Scheinfeld ’16:

On Saturday from 1-5pm Art House will be
hosting a crafts fair! The event will feature work from over 30
student artists in mediums such as on-site portraits, jewelry, henna,
blown glass, drawings, paintings, face painting, woodblock prints,
etchings, hand crafted books, and much much more! There will also be
several sets of live music and plenty of yummy food.

Remember – sales do not necessarily have to be monetary. Artists will
set their own prices; whether their drawing sells for 10$, two
dinners, a print in return, or any other form of trade is up to them.

Please stop by with friends and a couple of bucks to support our
artists and Green St. Arts Center.

Date: Saturday, February 7th
Time: 1-4 PM
Place: Art House
Cost: Pay what you’d like at the door
