Artisans

Abstract Cats Fiber Art

Soft Sculpture Cats and Kittens – Ericka Downs started her at-home sewing business to have more flexibility after her daughter was born. Her original business included making curtains, pillows, hand bags, and wallets, and custom embroidery. She added her kitties after she used Lucet cord, which her daughter makes as a hobby, as whiskers for a kitty. With the introduction of her Abstract Cats line, her daughter now assists her with making the kitties and has become her marketing assistant. abstractcatsfiberart.com

Magpie Designs

Paper Mache – A self-taught craftsman currently creating in paper mache, Margaret’s own whimsical works grew out of the love and appreciation of American crafts she developed during her 20 years owning and managing the downtown Wilmington shop, The Craft Connection.

Deborah Flanagan Jewelry

Jewelry – Deborah’s designs are classic, modern and minimalistic. Each piece is personally handcrafted and therefore unique. She is inspired by geometric shapes and their relationships to one another. Many of her pieces are hammered which creates facets to reflect light causing a sparkling affect. Working directly with metal, she fabricates her pieces from sterling silver wire or sheet metal. Using hammers, saws, heat and drills, she coaxes the metal into delicate pieces for adornment.  She is very conscious of how her designs will be worn and enjoyed by her customers. dfjewelry.etsy.com

John A. Styer

Turned Wood Heirlooms – John creates his lathe-turned heirlooms using local wood species as well as exotics from throughout the world. From Brazilian Rosewood to English Walnut, and from Cherry Burls to Poison Ivy vines, he brings the most visually appealing aspects of the wood to the surface by applying a sharp tool while it is rapidly spinning, creating myriad designs.  His works range from aesthetically utilitarian to purely artistic. lathe-meister.com

Irina’s Original

Wearable Fiber – Irina specializes in Nuno Felting shawls and scarves.  Nuno is similar to painting or sculpting but with merino wool on hand dyed silk. Her freeform crocheted vests and sweaters are original designs, not from patterns, and her technique is considered the one of the most difficult in crocheting and knitting. irinasoriginal.com

Anna Biggs Designs

Hand-carved Jewelry – Anna hand carves each silver and gold piece in her jewelry line using the lost wax process.  A graduate of both The Rhode Island School of Design and The Fashion Institute of Technology, she incorporates her love of nature and architecture into her unique sculptures. annabiggsdesigns.com

Nancy Butler – Alley Cat Jewelry

Handcrafted Beaded Jewelry – A lifelong Delaware artist, Nancy designs and handcrafts one-of-a-kind beaded jewelry. She searches the country for unusual high quality beads for her necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. When designing jewelry, Nancy allows each piece to develop naturally, taking inspiration from the beads themselves. Her work features semi-precious stones, pearls, crystal, lamp-work, and Czech glass with accents and findings made of sterling silver, vermeil, copper, base metal, and lead-free pewter. alleycatjewelrystudios.com

Angela Colasanti of Viela Jewelry

Botanical Sterling Silver and Bronze Jewelry – Drawing on her love of delicate objects from land and sea, Angela designs and handcrafts jewelry.  Her work accentuates the intrinsic beauty, grace, and elegance of its inspirational components and utilizes the interplay of form, texture, contrast, shape and asymmetry to attain visual harmony. Often, you can see traces of walking trails or beachcombings in Angela’s jewelry. vielajewelry.com

Beth Trepper

Fine Art Photography – To Beth, creating photographic images is as natural as breathing. Her portfolio includes fine art, portraiture, fashion, landscape, and epicurean still lifes and her style ranges from contemporary to vintage to playful. Influenced by Stieglitz, Kasebier, and Strand, Beth often uses natural light, a soft focus, and traditional film to create her timeless photographs. bethtrepper.com

Jo Miller

Fibers and Mixed Media – Ever since she can remember, Jo has made things out of other things. She has a passion for “touchable” and functional art and design.  Incorporating techniques such as wet and needle felting, embroidery, knitting, and crochet to design and make unique accessories, her “Sweater Rescue Project” gives new beauty and purpose to discarded woolens. Her Fairy Houses are paper sculpture on a base built with containers from the recycle bin, painted, and embellished with natural materials. She creates pieces with an “old world” attention to detail, adding whimsy just for fun. sweaterrescurproject.etsy.com

Robert Jenkins

Watercolor – Robert is an award winning artist from Chester County, PA.  His watercolor paintings capture the beauty of the sublime, and have been featured throughout the country. His three dimensional insect paintings amplify the details that are neglected in a two dimensional image. rjenkinsart.com

Meg Pierce Williamson

Artisanal Botanical Perfume – Fumes Fragrances are small batch artisanal fragrance, beauty and grooming products wild-crafted from all-natural, botanical ingredients. Their products are mindfully handmade within the USA. fumesfragrances.com

Taste Artisanal Market

Artisanal Spreads, Honeys, and Chutneys – Taste started out as a small, specialty store and cheese shop in Newark.  Customers loved their spreads and cheese. Their spreads, honeys, and chutneys are now in specialty stores, restaurants, and homes throughout the area and the east coast.  They continue to be inspired by cultures from around the world and create new, delicious, and imaginative products for you to enjoy. tasteartisanalmarket.com

Diane Treacy Keesee

Hand-painted Silk Scarves – Diane has worked with many big names in the industry—from Broadway costume designers to authors and designers—to develop her silk dying artistry.  Using her background in fine arts, photography, and culinary training, Diane experiments with her dyes, techniques, and designs.  While Diane’s scarves beg to be worn, they would also be just as beautiful as a framed work of art.

Karyn Warner Hammock – Metal Aesthetics

Jewelry and Mixed Media – A jewelry artist, clockmaker, and instructor, Karyn is inspired by nature and patterns. She works to bring texture and balance to her designs while still respecting the boundaries of keeping the materials functional. Reflecting a “jeweler’s touch,” precious gemstones and freshwater pearls find their way into many of her designs. metalaesthetics.com

Lisa Dadone-Weiner

Mosaic – A mosaic artist trained under Isaiah Zagar at Philadelphia Magic Gardens and in NYC at Unicorn Studio, Lisa’s work can be found on many walls in public and private installations. Her most recent work focuses on smaller wall decorations that include Hamsa hands, tennis rackets, wine bottles, hearts, and various other shapes.  Many of her works are custom-made to reflect the buyer’s personality, hopes, dreams, and life experiences. Lisa will bring a wide variety of “gift-able” works that will easily connect with many tastes. apassionforstone.com

Nicholas Payton
Feb 8 @ 8:00 pm

A highly gifted New Orleans-born trumpeter, keyboardist, and singer, Nicholas Payton balances a command of the jazz tradition with his love of hip-hop, funk, and R&B.

Nicholas Payton is widely considered one of the greatest artists of our time. Hailed as a virtuoso before he was even out of high school, his unbridled talent has earned him praise and accolades, as well as insured his place in history.

“Payton’s clarion trumpet, as well as his genre-defying solos, stood at the center of the music making… Payton bent notes beyond recognition… No descriptive label or category could be affixed to Payton’s solos, which were as brashly original as they were technically imposing.”

— Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune, Dec. 1, 2012
