Local Artist Overcoming Disability with a Generous Spirit

Blue Apatite Jasper on Silver Plated Brass

Karen Holtz, a local artist at Soulstice Artisan Market will be featured with her husband Bob at Soulstice Artisan Market, 632 North Winton Rd, February 6th from 6-8 pm.

Karen has a chronic disease, Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) This is a severe form of neuromuscular disease. This disability has not stopped her though. Through the use of various mobility aids she has overcome her disability and is creating beautiful pieces of unique art, concentrating mostly on jewelry. When I first met Karen she explained to me that she started to create beautiful jewelry so she can see her work worn and it makes her feel beautiful again. Karen does not need anything to make her beautiful! Her warm glow, strength and beautiful soul, that she portrays in her creations shows her inner beauty, the true form of beauty. Visit Soulstice Artisan Market on February 6th, another “First Friday” event in Rochester, to meet Karen and be inspired. For more information, please call the store at 585-370-0076.

Buying Local Art Thursday – Sunday, Dec 5 – 8

Square Logo Proud Member

I remember where I was the first time a customer asked me, “Are you local? I’m only buying locally made gifts this year.” This was in 2009, well before these words entered our vocabulary: Buy Local, Eat Local, locavores, Shop Small, Small Business Saturday. That woman opened my mind and I’ve been trying to live that way ever since. I’m not perfect but I try. And I know a lot of you do too.

Our community of artists, Rochester Artisans, has grown from 7 members in 2009, to 692 as of today. And we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for liking and buying what is our passion to make.

Here’s where you can find some of our members in the days to come of next weekend. There are 17 events listed here so I’m declaring this the High Weekend of Holiday Shopping Local!

Have fun and we thank you!
