DELAWARE ARTISAN FAIRE
Twenty-five Delaware artisans will exhibit and sell their wares on Sunday, October 23 from 12 noon until 5 p.m. at the Delaware Wine & Beer Festival on the grounds of Pizzadili Winery & Vineyards, 1683 Peach Basket Road in Felton.
The Delaware Artisan Faire is sponsored by Angelucci Gallery and Artists' Studios in Milford. The gallery is located at 7 Park Avenue in Milford and features 30 local and regional artists who make pottery, jewelry, fine art, prints, photography, handcrafted jewelry and handcrafted baskets. Five artisans from Angelucci will round out the event, including Scott Angelucci, fine woodworking, and his wife Gail, custom stained glass artist.
Mr. Angelucci specializes in reproduction and one-of-a-kind pieces. Furniture and built-ins are hand crafted using traditional joinery. He also crafts special molding and millwork in a large variety of woods. Mrs. Angelucci's stained glass is designed and created by commission. Each piece of glass is carefully hand-selected to assure a perfect end result.
Additional artisans who will represent the Gallery include ceramicist Marie Sadler; Pane in the Glass dichroic glass jewelry by Jan Brunory, Val Dellas and Judy Phillips; mixed media artist Randy Strader and Cassie Lawn Walker, surrealist artist.
"We are pleased with the number and quality of artisans for this year's event," said Lorraine Dion, Director of Special Events and Public Relations for Kent County Tourism, producer of the event. "Pairing Delaware-made art with Delaware wines and beers is a natural combination, plus the Faire provides a great opportunity to purchase gifts in time for the holiday gift-giving season," she said.
Twenty additional artisans will feature fiber arts, prints and original art, primitive painting, photography, hand-painted glassware, jewelry, note cards and more.
