“Craft-y” thinking was on full display last weekend as people flocked from all over the area to the Bruce Museum’s 29th Annual Outdoor Crafts Festival.

According to festival director Sue Brown Gordon there were close to 70 artists participating in the two-day event. And there was good attendance too as it benefited from lovely spring weather to attract a crowd to see artists from all over the country (as well as Canada) display jewelry, metal sculptures, dyed silk and other unique creations. The artists themselves were also on hand to sell their work and interact with people.

This wasn’t just a chance to display and sell art, though. It was also a juried competition, and prizes were handed out in several categories. For ceramics, Sang Joon Park took home first prize, and second prize went to Cathie Cantara, while Richard and Terri MacMillan won the third prize. In jewelry design, Luba Warrack was the top winner followed by Dana and David Melnick and Jennifer Jordan Park. For work with fiber, Lori Lupe-Pelish won first prize, Cindy Ciarcia won second and Lynn Pullmam won third.

The wood category saw honors go to Anthony Beverly, Rich Dowin and Meb Boden and Tom Vaiciulis. Plus there was excellence in craft honors as the glass/metal prizes went to Judith Wrend in first, Aaron Leaman in second and Drew Klotz in third. Judging for the leather/mixed metal category had Marcia Guthrie in first place, Jorge Gil in second and Dennis McDonald in third.

Post photographer John Ferris Robben was there to take it all in and more of his images will be available online Monday at Greenwich-post.com.
