The Maine Crafts Guild, in celebration of American Craft Week, will present the Brunswick Fine Craft Show on October 7 & 8, 2017 in Brunswick, Maine at the Fort Andross Mill Complex. This American Craft Week event will offer excellence in fine craft designed and handmade by professional Maine artisans.

Brunswick-based textile artist and new member, Catherine Worthington will exhibit her distinctive painted and stitched textiles. Worthington says, “As I explore the medium of textile painting I am often discovering the balance between abstraction and representation. I love the colors, patterns and textures in the landscape and strive to capture its essence as I paint, creating a rich surface. My process of cutting, piecing and stitching adds abstraction, depth and dimension.”

Returning member and jeweler, Christine Peters of Damariscotta, will exhibit her ever-popular silver and gold designs. “I design and create elements and textures which I abstract and simplify the shapes to use over again within a series, playing with different finishes and components for unique looks. My designs are classic and simple, yet modern and strong. Each piece is created deliberately–intentionally and reinforced through the process of making.” says Peters.

As a proud participant in American Craft Week, the Brunswick Fine Craft Show will bring buyers and artists together for unique shopping experiences in wood, metal, clay, natural fibers and glass. Admission: $4 adults; under 18 free. October 7 & 8, 2017: Sat. 10am – 5pm & Sun. 10am – 4pm. Fort Andross Mill Complex, 14 Maine Street, Brunswick, Maine.
