Edom Festival of Arts Restocks Featured Folks
Edom Festival of the Arts is scheduled October 20-21. The free, family-friendly event brings together artists and performers of the highest quality in a juried show.
New artists this year include Lyn Foley, who makes her own glass beads then puts them together with handmade findings to make colorful, sculptural jewelry. Ina Crowe from Fort Worth makes paper, then turns the paper into lightweight, unusual jewelry. Stephanie H. Ford produces western-themed art using the old form of scratchboard. A potter from Dallas, Angela Gallia, makes stoneware using slab construction which gives her pieces amazing detail and design.
Several new artists design and create artistic clothing. Valery Guignon makes functional garments beautiful enough to hang on the wall; Laura Maclay designs fun and funky handbags; Leslie Kregel makes hats from recycled wool sweaters.
A block of wood becomes a Native American elder or laconic cowboy under the knife of wood sculptor Kevin Malone, while Deborah Wood’s photographs depict the natural world with a modern twist.
Popular favorites return including jewelers, wood workers, painters, glass artists, sculptors, potters, photographers, weavers, and fiber artists.
The festival grounds are downtown near the intersection of FM 279 and FM 314. For more information, go to www.edomfestivalofthearts.com.
