DESCRIPTION: One of top Guild shows in PA, the Holiday Show offers museum quality examples of contemporary and traditional Pennsylvania folk artwork produced by more than 96 artisans who are members of the Reading-Berks Chapter (which is the largest chapter in the Pennsylvania Guild) and other juried craftsmen who are members of the Pennsylvania Guild. Together with the talented Guild artisans, select Kutztown University art students will be displaying and selling their art. Alumni have also been invited to participate, making this a historic gathering of artists.
Visitors to the show may choose from several genres – assorted arts, basketry, clay, fiber, glass, jewelry, metal, paper, photography and wood. Traditional holiday show favorites are stained glass, hooked rugs, pressed and dried flower art, furniture, woodworking, ceramics, wearables, tole and folk art paintings and holiday collectibles, including Santas.
The Acoustic Roadshow, featuring a variety of talented local musicians, will be performing both popular and original musical entertainment throughout the event.
Dori Martin Catering is providing refreshments in a special café seating area.
The show features live holiday music and a “Pick-A-Prize” Raffle of handcrafted items, each worth $50 or more and created by Guild artisans. You can preview the raffle items at the Guild’s website. Door prizes also are given away every hour on both days.
