An extravagant three days of fine arts-and-crafts return to the Pioneer Valley this weekend with Northampton’s Paradise City Arts Festival, which will feature “260 competitively juried artists from 25 states exhibiting original works in ceramics, painting, decorative fiber, art glass, fine furniture, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, photography, large-scale sculpture, wearable art and wood.”
You get the idea.
Many regional artists from New York will be there. Pictured is an art glass piece made by Hoogs and Crawford Glass in Canaan.
