"Journey's End " Detail 2013 Cindy Grisdela

“Journey’s End” Detail 2013 Cindy Grisdela

I’m pleased to announce that I’ve been accepted into the American Craft Council’s shows in Baltimore and Atlanta for 2014.

The Baltimore show is being held February 21-23, 2014 at the Baltimore Convention Center at One West Pratt St. and the Atlanta show runs March 14-16, 2014 at the Cobb Galleria Centre. I did the Baltimore show for the first time this year, and the Atlanta show will be a new addition to my calendar for 2014.

I’m looking forward to working on some new pieces to introduce at these shows! I have some new ideas in the planning stages, building on the ideas I’ve been exploring in Journey’s End–the detail at left–but first I have the last three shows of 2013 to prepare for.

Coming up next is the Downtown Art Festival in Gainesville, Florida–my hometown–November 16-17. Hours are 10-5 both days, and I’ll be in Booth 127 on University Ave.

If you’re in the Connecticut area, I’m participating in two holiday shows there. Opening November 1 is Artistry 2013 at the Guilford Art Center in Guilford, CT. I’ve been invited to show small wall pieces, pillows and table runners at this show, which runs through January 5, 2014. Also opening November 1 is the Celebration of American Craft 2013 at the Creative Arts Workshop in New Haven, CT. I’ll have small wall hangings and pillows at this event. Just my work will be at these two ongoing shows, not me too!

In December, I’ll be showing at 3 Days with the Artists at Hidden Springs Farm in Great Falls, VA. This is one of my favorite events of the year–an opportunity to participate in a festive home show with a variety of other artists and enjoy good food and music with our guests. If you’d like an invitation, email me at cpgrisdela at gmail.com.

The last show of the year will be the Great Falls Holiday Show in a NEW LOCATION at the Center for Education at the Barns of Wolf Trap in Vienna, VA on December 7-8 from 10-5 both days. Sponsored by Sun Design Remodeling Inc., it’s going to be a fun celebration of the season! More details on this to come.

I hope to see you at any or all of these shows!
