Keuka Arts Festival This Weekend!

Red Tree Studio - Best in Jewelry, Athens ArtsFest 2014

Red Tree StudioBest in Jewelry, Athens ArtsFest 2014

I have a great fondness for the Keuka Lake area. After my dad retired at age 55, he owned a 125 acre tree farm for a bunch of years. I loved the drive down there and never missed a chance to hit up The Windmill Farm & Craft Market and Oak Hill Bulk Foods.

Poor Penn Yan has been through a lot lately with the recent flooding. I can hardly bear to look at the photos. There’s a bar/restaurant we used to have lunch at sometimes. I remember my sister and I taking our visiting cousin there once. Actually my most vivid memory of that trip is Scott making me laugh so hard, I squirted milk out my nose. (Sorry for the visual.) It was not in the restaurant, thank goodness, but in the car. My mom’s car. I remember turning on the windshield wipers, pretending they were on the inside, erasing all evidence, making us laugh harder.

Um, where was I? Oh! The many Rochester Artisans you’ll get to visit with at this year’s Keuka Arts Festival. Here they are!

I was lucky enough to be in Linda’s studio recently and she showed me some Keuka Lake pieces she was working on, specifically for this show. I’m not finding any photos of them so I’m sharing this custom dog panel because I love it.

You can get a glimpse of the artwork that will be for sale, on the Maplewood Y Craft Show’s website.

I’m very involved in helping Sara Senour organize this show so I wanted to share some background information. This is the 3rd annual for this show – and this time it’s juried! That means the scores of 3 outside jurors were used to determine the finest selection of artisans you will see at the show. The jurors assigned a value of 1-5, using 5 different criteria.

We were also very grateful to be able to use the services offered by the public relations person that works for the local corporate office of the YMCA. With the help of their graphic designers, we’re very happy with our “branded” look that will follow the show for years to come.

On a personal note, I’m happy to report that the Rochester Artisans listed above account for 60% of the total artists in the show. I love numbers and I know you love Fun Facts.

Noteworthy things to mention for customers, also new this year:
Passport Program. Each visitor will receive a program upon entering the show. The centerfold is printed with a layout of the artisan spaces, including booth number. Customers are encouraged to have each artist they visit, initial their little space on the map. Customers who obtain 30 initials, out of 42 artists, are then eligible for the drawing of 3 fabulous prizes. (Prizes are gift certificates to Target, Peoples Pottery and Craft Co No. 6.)

The Irondequoit Art Club will be hosting their show (with demonstrations) in the Lily Cafe, just steps from the gym where the craft show is. The FCTT HiRailers will be demonstrating model railroading. And there is complimentary child care is available.

Lastly, there will also be 2 food sales going on at the Maplewood Y that day as well. One is an International Food Sale with sampling of cuisines from around the world. The second is a Bake Sale with all sorts of sweet treats for sale.

I can't resist pointing out that all 5 photos on this postcard show the work of Rochester Artisans, (a decision made unknowingly by the YMCA public relations team). ~ Stefani ~

1st Brainery Bazaar – May 11

Brainery Bazaar Logo

I love this logo SO much!

And I love Rochester Brainery, too. That’s the mother ship that is launching this monthly craft show series on the 2nd Saturday of each month. I wrote more about it and the first class I took there, in March. I say first because I know there are more in my future.

On May 11th, Rochester Brainery will present the VERY FIRST Brainery Bazaar, our NEW monthly craft show held the 2nd Saturday of every month!

Brainery Bazaar will feature some of the best local artists- no matter their trade! Not only do we want to be a space where local artists can share their talents through teaching classes, but we also want to be a space where they can showcase their talents to the community on a regular basis.

This is a FREE event and the first 25 people in the door will even receive a FREE Brainery Bazaar tote bag with some great swag!

We’re still recruiting local artists to become a part of our monthly show! If you’re a local artist interested in finding out how to get involved, please e-mail
