East Cobb Artists Prepare for Top Holiday Gift Show

23

East Cobb fiber artist Lynn Weinberg, 2014 Elegant Elf Chair Jan Stewart, and ceramicist Malena Bisanti-Wall prepare for the Elegant Elf Marketplace gift show.

Now in its 4th year, the festive Elegant Elf Marketplace is a destination event for hundreds of discerning shoppers eager to  jumpstart their holiday lists with the two-day shopping extravaganza. Hosted by the 300-member Sandy Springs Society, the  high-end gift show has a growing list of over 75 local and regional vendors, making it one of the top “shopping for a cause”
experiences in Atlanta this holiday.

Joining the bandwagon of superior craftsmen are a dozen artisans from Cobb County, and half of those reside in East Cobb.

Malena Bisanti-Wall, a ceramic and mixed media artist in Marietta, is bringing her colorful and whimsical pieces of art to the table this year. A transplant from Florida, she incorporates a variety of textures and patterns into her whimsical work. “Ever since  high school, I’ve been inspired by meaningful quotes and portray these in my art,” said Bisanti-Wall. “My hope is that these elements in my work will in turn inspire others.”

East Cobb fiber artist Lynn Weinberg is returning after a successful first year. She has spanned the globe with her one-of-a-kind textile creations currently under the LRW Designs label. Weinberg’s handpainted silk fashion wearables have sold in major stores including Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Prior to calling East Cobb home, she started her impressive fiber career in Washington, D.C. and continued to hone her skills when her husband’s physician job called them to the Philippines. “With partners in two cities, silk imported from Hong Kong, dyes from France and production in the Philippines, we made use of the word “global” long before the internet was invented.”Now she returns to her roots as a crafter making textile creations out of her studio home in the Somerset neighborhood.

The Elegant Elf Marketplace has filled a void for holiday shoppers who seek a welcome alternative from the mall and a more meaningful shopping experience. One hundred percent of the Elegant Elf proceeds go directly back to the community through the Society’s philanthropic grants to over 25 local non-profits centered on education, the arts, environment, heritage preservation
and social services.

“We take great pride in identifying and debuting superior new craftsmen each year to keep the event fresh, and are thrilled to have the presence of so many East Cobbers,” said event co-chair Jan Stewart. Shoppers can expect festive upscale gifts and creations
in jewelry, handcrafted fashions, fine crafts, home and garden, handbags, toys, and gourmet delights. Shoppers can also treat themselves to a signature lunch at the Polar Express Café, purchase tickets for festive raffle packages, and enjoy seasonal music as they shop.

The Elegant Elf Marketplace takes place November 15 – 16, Saturday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.; and Sunday from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. at Lake Forest Elementary School, 5920 Sandy Springs Circle (across from the Lefont Theatre). $5 entrance fee (children 10 and under are free). Parking is free. For more information, visit www.sandyspringssociety.org.
