2013 T-Shirt and Poster Design
August 3 & 4, 2013
The Village Art and Craft Fair continues a long tradition of bringing high-quality crafts to Biltmore Village. Presented by New Morning Gallery and Bellagio Art-to-Wear, the outdoors art festival is on the grounds of the Cathedral of all Souls in Biltmore Village. (Take a look inside the beautiful church while you are there.)
The fair hosts 118 artists from 14 states, representing the full spectrum of craft media - jewelry, ceramic, wood, fiber, metals, two-dimensional art and more. The craft fair is a great opportunity to encounter new artists (25 are first-time exhibitors) and to talk with crafters one-on-one. Some 33 artists are from Western North Carolina. Most exhibitors are not represented at New Morning Gallery, so there are plenty of new treasures to find.
Over the years, the Village Art and Craft Fair reputation as one of the finest craft fairs in the area has spread (along with the ubiquitous cat posters and T-shirts). Thousands of shoppers from all over the southeast arrive to stroll through the fair, discovering unique gifts.
Starting with the ninth year, a cat has been in every posters’ design. This year a long time favorite designer, Sherry Vintson, has created the fanciful art work, her tenth craft fair design!
Fair hours are Saturday 10 AM to 7 PM and Sunday Noon to 6 PM, rain or shine. There is no admission fee. Homemade refreshments are available at church sponsored concession booths with proceeds benefiting the Cathedral's Outreach program.
