Featuring three renowned area artists: Senora Lynch (Haliwa-Saponi) of Living Traditions with her internationally-recognized Native American art pottery; this will be Senora’s first local show; Dianne T. Rodwell, originally from Warrenton, a specialist in encaustic art; and Cathy Wiggins of Gypsy Wood Leathers, a pioneer in leather quilting.
This curated fair has 36 vendors with original art, traditional crafts and antiques, coming from all over North Carolina's greater Piedmont area.
There will be something for everyone of every budget. A family-friendly affair with Hyson's Miniature Horse Cart Rides for the children, acoustic Celtic music by Cynergy of Savannah, Ga., and a History Hunt conducted by N.C. Dirt Detectives.
The event will be sponsoring and supporting a new Warren County Scholarship for the Arts to benefit one lucky Warren County student matriculating to a Fine Arts degree program. Coordinated through the Warren County school system, applications are now available and due by May 1.
A raffle with a prize pool composed of donated items from the Craft Day vendors will be the source of the funds. Tickets for the raffle go on sale April 17 and 18 at The Scarlet Rooster and Oakley Hall Antiques & Art, both located in downtown Warrenton, and will also be sold the day of the event.
Wonderful food. Free Admission. Free Parking. The Old Cotton Gin is a truly charming historic event venue with large interior and exterior exhibit areas. Rain or shine.
