I want to share my latest magazine feature with you. This is a small national publication for members of wholesale buyer group. It covers cottage industry arts and crafts of the Appalachian and Allegheny Mountains. The articles are presented as a profile portfolio for each artisan. I am truly honored to be included.
The woman that spearheads this venture visited me last summer before we lost our beloved Cocoa so it was nice to see him included in the article. True to form, everyone who ever met Cocoa was enamored with his gentle, loving demeanor.
Meghan Carroll spends her summer traveling the mountains and back roads to find local artisans for her project. Her grandmother was a patron of the arts in the 1960's and founded a co-op for the impoverished Appalachia area craftsmen. That co-op is long gone but Meghan carries on her grandmother's promotional work with her project which raises awareness of independent local artists.
Thanks to my ArtFire studio, I have some of my other newspaper, magazine and blog features on my Facebook page, you can find them here.
Thanks for visiting,
