Now in its 75th year, the American Craft Council (ACC) is bringing back its prestigious, juried show to Cobb Galleria Centre, March 17-19, where more than 250 of the country’s top contemporary craft artists will present their latest handmade creations in jewelry, clothing, furniture, and home décor.

 

Some of East Cobb’s finest craftspeople will be featured at the Southeast’s largest juried show. The show’s longest exhibiting Georgia artist is Ricky Frank from East Cobb, who produces enameled jewelry pieces that feature an emphasis on light, texture, and transparent colors. East Cobber Pj Floyd, a mixed media artist, specializes in whimsical “creatures” showcasing her love of nature and the garden. Another East Cobb resident, Doug Durkee, also works in mixed media, with infinity mirrors, infinity tables and “infinity clock” timepiece creations.

 

Show-goers will enjoy the return of Make Room: Modern Design Meets Craft “In Space and Time”, featuring specialty designs from the decades of the 1940s to the 1970s, Hip Pop, Let’s Make programs and Style Slam. Style Slam, ACC’s newest program addition, returns for its second year, pairing four professional stylists with the talented network of ACC fashion wearable, accessory and jewelry artists to demonstrate how the statement pieces ACC is known for are the perfect fit for any fashion-conscious wardrobe. One of the stylists, Nichole Moreland from East Cobb, will be selecting items to meld with her styling outlook — minimal and

occasionally quirky.
