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.
