Opens for Holiday Shopping
November 24–26, 2017
(Covington, KY)— Commemorating its 40th year, Winterfair, a juried fair of
fine art and fine craft by over 250 artists from across the country, welcomes
shoppers to the Northern Kentucky Convention Center in Covington, November
24–26. The convention center is just over the Roebling Suspension Bridge from
Cincinnati, an easy drive from both sides of the river.
Featuring ceramics, glass, wearable art, jewelry, sculpture, painting and
photography, Winterfair is an artists’ market where discerning shoppers will find
everything from a beautiful watercolor perfect for their home to a soft leather
duffel bag. Items range in price from as little as $15 to several thousand dollars.
“Winterfair is a fun, festive start to the holiday season, with unique gifts
handcrafted by artists from across the country,” commented Betty Talbott,
executive director of Ohio Designer Craftsmen, the organizers of the fair. Among
the exhibitors are a number of returning favorites, along with many new artists.
Always popular, California artists Alex and Mona Szabados are back with their
stunning enamel jewelry. Newcomers Tyler Jury and Clay Simpson of Louisville
create beautiful leather totes, clutches, and even koozies and coasters.
