Made by Hand Art Show called
‘true community event’
Large crowds of people turned out for the Made By Hand Art Show & Sale Nov. 17 at the Firehouse Cultural Center in Ruskin. Estimated attendance was about 400, said events coordinator Beth Stein.
“It was a great show,” said a highly animated Kate Hamilton, one of the show’s organizers. “We were really happy with the crowds. Everyone who came seemed to bump into someone they knew. It was a true community event, which was our intent.
Made by Hand featured 20 local artisans who showed and sold their original creations in works of glass, fabric, jewelry, pottery, mixed media, 3D art, acrylics, wood, children’s literature and more.
