Here are some of the artists that will be exhibiting in the show:

Annie Gray: Wreaths

The first artist we would like to introduce to you is Annie Gray. Creating a look incorporating her coastal lifestyle and Missouri heritage, designer Annie Gray began Beachy Wreaths in 2009 on the belief that a front door be used to capture attention, send a message and reflect personality. Beachy Wreaths is on a mission to blend elegance with fun. You can learn more about this artist HERE.

Daniel Dunn: Bird Feeders

Next, we would like to introduce to you Daniel Dunn. Daniel has always enjoyed attending local Art & Craft festivals to see all the unique items that were offered at these festivals. People seemed to love his bird feeders so much, that Dan considered participating in a couple of Art & Craft shows. So Dan signed up and displayed his wares in a small show in Brooksville, Florida. To Dan’s surprise the bird feeders they were an instant success and he sold 90% of all his bird feeders he had brought. Since that first show, Dan has participated in dozens of shows and sells hundreds of his products each month. You can view more of his work HERE.

Lee Murrell: Copper

The final artist we are going to introduce to you today is Lee Murrell. Lee’s original designs are created using copper, a lasting and versatile metal, and fired porcelain enamels with touches of brass. Because all of the stems and branches are heavy copper wire you can gently work them into the shape you like. Therefore, each piece is customizable to your liking! You can learn more about this dynamic artist HERE.

You will be able to see these artists mentioned above along with 100 other talented crafters. Make sure you stop by the show!
