Pillywiggins Garden added event planning to its resume in 2012 when we were handed the reigns to the Winter Fantasy Art Show, an annual mixed-media art and fine craft juried art show. We created a 2nd event, an autumn art festival, the following year. Our events have been well attended and well received by the public, press and participating artists alike.
Our goal is to provide a platform for talented local artists to showcase their original work without direct competition between artists using similar mediums and without any competition from manufactured or mass-produced goods that can devalue an artist's original artwork. All artists are carefully selected to avoid repetition and items of inferior quality. Each booth offers shoppers something new and places the spotlight where it belongs, on the artist.
