Pelham Art Center’s annual artisan and craft exhibition is back, with some exciting and fresh changes, including highly affordable and unique gifts, perfect for the holidays. Craft Marketplace: Exhibition and Sale of the Handmade will highlight a dynamic collection of quality, affordable handmade items for sale, from Friday, November 17 through Saturday, December 30, 2017.

Craft Marketplace will feature over 15 local and national artists who represent a range of traditional and modified artisan techniques, creating one-of-a-kind items.
