Arts and crafts keeping traditions alive

BuckHaven artists among the nation's best

The American Craft Show, a three-day celebration taking place March 13 - 15 at the Cobb Galleria Centre, will feature approximately 230 of the country’s leading fine craft artisans specializing in contemporary jewelry, clothing, furniture, home goods and décor. This year’s show has a strong representation of artists and makers from the southeast with more than 20 Atlanta-area artists participating, including Debra Kidd from Brookhaven and Lynn Pollard from Buckhead.

“I believe art and craft are becoming more and more intertwined, and I personally think that promoting craft in the southeast is important in keeping our strong traditions alive while also supporting the new directions makers are taking,” said Lynn Pollard, a Buckhead resident who works with fiber and textiles. Pollard, along with Atlanta artist Rachel Garceau, joined the board of the American Craft Council last year and look forward to connecting the history of craft with an audience eager to learn about handcrafted, slowly-made lifestyle goods and décor.
