Homewood the location for 3-day arts and crafts festival
A wide variety of artisans will display original photography, paintings, jewelry, glasswork and sculptures at the ninth annual Fine Arts and Crafts Festival at Homewood Mountain Resort Friday through Sunday, July 20-22, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m..
Some of the artists include:
— Mike and Molly Bennett of Stateline will bring their collection of pendants, earrings, necklaces and pins made with fused glass. In addition to displaying their work, Molly Bennett will create jewelry with items that visitors bring to the booth, such as gems and precious stones, wrapping the pieces with 14-carat gold fill or sterling silver wire.
— Donald Ewen of Walnut Creek who has been creating impressionistic watercolor paintings for more than 20 years. His work is inspired largely from his travels to Lake Tahoe – Sand Harbor is one of his favorite destinations. He also paints floral watercolors every spring to celebrate the new season, which he’ll have on hand at the festival.
— Rosa and Napoleon Paz of Cotati, Calif. design and handcraft leather bags in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. All of their bags are made using soft cowhide, to which a rich dye is applied making the leather dirt and water-resistant.
— Other artists participating include Jess and Peggy Ray of Mill Creek, Wash. with their wildlife photography; Jerry and Joan Dubson of Frazier Park featuring their fine jewelry; Karen Colbert of Incline Village showcasing her popular Tahoe quilts; and Kristi Flynn of Fresno with her handmade candles.
