A new craft festival will add another dimension of fun and entertainment to the Delray Marketplace this weekend. This popular destination in West Delray will host the debut of American Craft Endeavors' newest outdoor-juried craft festival. The Delray Marketplace Art & Craft Festival will showcase the work of 100 top artists and crafters. Many of the exhibitors will be wearing pink in a show of solidarity and others will be selling works of art inspired by their experiences with breast cancer, hoping to raise awareness and funds for this devastating disease.
Jewelry designer Gail Small, of Last Call Glass, has created a unique pinktober piece for the festival giveaway. Gail describes the handcrafted prize, titled "Pink Tree of Life" and valued at $49, as an "upcycled" glass art necklace. The giveaway prize will be on display in Gail's booth throughout the weekend where registration will also take place. The winning ticket will be drawn on Sunday at 4:00 p.m. To learn more about Gail Small's work and explore her online gallery go to www.lastcallglass.com.
A wide variety of original art, handmade crafts and affordable unique gift items will be on display and for sale with prices set to suit all budgets. All artists and crafters will be present for the duration of the festival and welcome the opportunity to meet patrons and art enthusiasts.
American Craft Endeavors and Howard Alan Events bring many art and craft festivals to Delray Beach each year including the city's signature Festival of the Arts and the Thanksgiving Weekend Art Festival, which are both consistently ranked among the top 100 best shows in the country by Sunshine Artist, the nation's leading publication for art and craft shows.
