Willow Gift & Home to celebrate American Craft Week Oct. 5 with Art in the Garden


News Release

---- — Willow Gift & Home, in joining more than 200 retailers and art institutions nationwide in celebration of American Craft Week, will present Art in the Garden on Saturday on the east side of Terre Haute. Open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 3500 Hulman St., this American Craft Week event will feature 10 artists from the Wabash Valley.

Artists include Julia London-Meddles, who will be creating live, plein-air paintings in the Bunch Nurseries gardenscape throughout the day.

American Craft Week, now in its fourth year, is the annual coast-to-coast recognition of the makers, retailers, collectors and exhibitors of handmade craft. “We’re passionate about the exceptional value, enduring quality and cultural significance of handmade American craft,” says Diane Sulg, co-chair of the campaign. “In a society filled with machine-made things, we need to support the talented and dedicated people who create decorative and useful goods by hand.”
