The Craftsmen’s Guild of Pittsburgh, in cooperation with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, will mount a special holiday show and sale at the Trust’s 709 Penn Avenue Gallery in downtown Pittsburgh.  The show will feature work in a richly diverse range of art and fine crafts media, including jewelry, clay, glass, wood, sculpture, textiles, paper and many others.   Pieces on offer will run the gamut from simple and whimsical items to exquisite works of art.   All are unique and exclusively handcrafted by members of the Craftsmen’s Guild of Pittsburgh.

Founded in 1944, the Craftsmen’s Guild of Pittsburgh is one of the city’s most venerable and respected artists’ organizations, with a long-standing reputation for quality, excellence and the individual creativity of its rigorously vetted members.  The Guild is best known for its signature annual event, A Fair in the Park.  The Fair, one of the region’s premier arts and fine crafts festivals, recently celebrated its 44th year of continuous operation in Mellon Park, Shadyside.  The Craftsmen’s Guild of Pittsburgh has been a resident guild of the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts for over 50 years.

An opening reception will be held at the gallery on Friday, November 15th, from 6 pm until 8 pm.   The show will then run through January 5th, 2014.
