Fairlawn - With the growing popularity of Pinterest, Etsy, and do-it-yourself projects, handmade goods and décor are becoming more popular each day. The annual Avant-Garde Art & Craft Show has joined in this movement with a milestone of its own. The show is a two-day event at St. George's Fellowship Center, 3204 Ridgewood Road, Fairlawn on Oct. 19, 20 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Avant-Garde shows feature an eclectic selection from the area's most talented artisans and crafters. The upcoming fall show will include nearly 100 artists and crafters selling their original items. Customers can look forward to handmade jewelry and accessories, hand dipped candles, Ohio pride baby clothes, one of a kind artwork, and more.
Founded in June 2011 by Becki Cooper of Rebecca Adele PR & Events, the Avant-Garde Art & Craft Shows started out as a small show with 45 vendors and has since blossomed into 10 shows a year around Northeast and Central Ohio. Each event attracts 100 vendors.
In addition to supporting local artists and crafters, a portion of the proceeds from this year's 2013 Summit County Fall Avant-Garde Art & Craft Show will also benefit local animal shelter, Jade's No Kill Rescue. Admission to the show is $3 to the public and children under 12 are free. The show will also feature an -a-carte lunch items from TLC Catering with a full bar on site.
