Kanawha and Putnam county artists will be among more than 100 statewide talents who will participate in the first-ever West Virginia Craft Week Oct. 2 through Oct. 11. Being held in conjunction with the national American Craft Week, the 10-day event is a showcase for state artists that lets the public share in their creative processes and get an inside look at the intricacies of the arts and crafts produced in West Virginia.

West Virginia Craft Week will feature open studios, exhibitions and events at dozens of locations in more than 20 counties throughout the state. The public will be invited to watch artists practice their craft, take part in art demonstrations, visit fairs and festivals, view exhibitions, purchase artwork and more.

"We are fortunate in West Virginia to have many retail locations around the state in which residents and visitors can view and shop year-round for fine arts and crafts created by local artists, said Alissa Novoselick, executive director of the Tamarack Artisan Foundation, in a media release announcing the event. "During West Virginia Craft Week, we have the added bonus of being able to see our artists many of whom are recognized nationally for their talents in person and experience the creative process in action. It is a great way for us to support West Virginia artists and the local creative economies.

It is the first time West Virginia artists statewide have participated collectively and formally in American Craft Week.
