Not that we expect everyone to remember, but once again this past weekend, Eastern Shore Community College hosted its annual Heritage Celebration to showcase local arts and crafts. We’ve participated the past 3 years, Grenville with wood turning and myself with photography as shown in the above collages.
What’s unique about this event is that it’s not only free for local artisans but coffee, donuts and lunch are also gratis to participants. Artists are invited to sell their wares too. Last year, Grenville lamented about having no sales. This year, he nearly sold all his remaining inventory (shown here) which made him very happy.
We know many folks in the local arts/crafts community from participating in local shows in past years. It’s always good to see their work; there are many talented folks on the VA eastern shore. Here are some examples of local talent.
