This winter has been a tough one for those of us living in the mid-Atlantic. The record snowfall and continued frigid temps have reinforced my wish that the month of February be carved off the calendar forever. But then, just as I am hitting the lowest of winter lows, the American Craft Council Show rolls into Baltimore, and my spirits are lifted. So, if you are like me and need a visual pick-me-up, get to Baltimore this weekend for the ACC Show – the largest juried craft show in the country where more than 700 of the country's leading craft artists will present their latest artwork.
Of particular note: Don't miss the newest blown glass pieces from Twisp River Glass (Twisp, Washington). Allison Ciancibelli and Jeremy Newman continue to capture the nuances of the environment surrounding them and their connection to it in their blown glass artwork. Their newest series is another homerun. And, during a long snowy winter, every east coaster will appreciate the quality and subtleties in Jeremy and Allison's white glass.
