Submitted

The Congregational Church of Burlington will host its second annual Artists and Artisan Fair on Saturday, November 3, 10:00-3:30 at the Burlington Town Hall, Spielman Highway (Rt 4), Burlington.  

After last year’s success, the fair is expanding its space to include the entire hallway and senior center, as well as the auditorium and foyer. This unique event features selected 25 artists and artisans from Litchfield, Hartford, and Tolland Counties.

The Fair Committee chose exhibitors primarily based on variety and original work. The fair is a great time to start purchasing holiday gifts. Residents new to the area as well as those looking to freshen up their home or office will not be disappointed. There is a variety of price point and something for everyone. 

Exhibitors include artists Debbie Leonard, Leslie Flowers, Denise Balcanoff, Kristie Abersman, Paul Kulikowski, Brook Nightingale,  Kevin Dix, Rebecca Schwartz, printer Elizabeth McNally, mixed media artist Lori Baker, textile artists Joan Blade Johnson, and nature/ architectural photographer Jaroslav Bil. Doreen Breen of Soul Threads will bring her up cycled clothing line recently displayed at Danbury’s Fashion Week. Potter Grace Epstein brings her collection of functional pottery.

Other artisans include wood carvers Bob Stafford and Edward Weingarden, The Honey Locust  Boutique,  jewelers Linda Davidson of Quilibet, Lynne Patnode’s Silver  Spiral Creations and more. 

Of course, there will be a bake sale highlighting seasonal breads, pies, and coffee cakes by church members, and a tea cup auction of items supplied by exhibitors.

The Girls Scouts will be selling cookies and the Boy Scouts; hot coffee and snacks.
