Saturday and Sunday, May 18 – 19, 10 am – 5 pm – Bruce Museum Outdoor Crafts Festival, 1 Museum Drive, Greenwich, CT. The Bruce Museum’s 34th Annual Outdoor Crafts Festival will take place this Saturday and Sunday, from 10 am to 5 pm each day. More than 60 juried exhibitors will share their unique talents and crafts in wood, wearable and decorative fiber, metalwork, leather, paper arts, glass, ceramics, jewelry, and more. The festival also features an array of food truck cuisine, including Kettle Korn, Thai Taste, and Wendies Weenies. Lending ambience to the Festival with performances, both days, will be Ed Wright, on guitar playing updated acoustic classics and contemporary originals; and Annalisa Ewald, a classical guitarist whose repertoire includes baroque as well as the standards. Artists’ demonstrations are a perennial Festival favorite, and this year potters Erika Nowak and Drew Darley from Round Trip Clayworks in New Britain, CT, will throw ceramic forms at their booth located on the steps in front of the Museum entrance. Hands-on craft activities for all ages are available at no additional charge in the Museum’s Education Workshop, and the Museum’s galleries will be open. Exhibitions on view include Summer with the Averys [Milton | Sally | March]; Buried Treasures of the Silk Road; the science exhibition Sharks!; and the community art project Your Place Squared.
