Flowers Everywhere!


If you come to this year's An Artful Affair, GWCC's annual trunk show extraordinaire, this is some of what you'll see: beautiful wool flowers handcrafted by our own Nan Loncharich, author of Making Flowers from Wool, and mixed media art by Cia Williford. Both ladies are founding members of GWCC.

Come by and visit the show on Saturday, October 1st. We'd love to meet you (and we'll have the best cookies in town, too -- promise!).

An Artful Affair 2011 - Save the date!

The Greater Westmoreland Creative Collective is pleased to announce its second annual trunk show, "An Artful Affair 2011", on Saturday, October 1st, from 10 to 4 p.m., in Greensburg, PA.

"An Artful Affair" is intended to celebrate local artistry and to honor Pennsylvania's long heritage of fine handcrafted goods. In a world filled with "fast, cheap and disposable", the GWCC and "An Artful Affair" are dedicated to providing only quality, high value, and unique creativity to those who can truly appreciate them.

Our artists also have a strong commitment to the three R's (Reuse, Repurpose, or Recycle) and you will find that many of their works reflect this important environmental sensibility.

Please join us for a day of tantalizing tea, delightful delectables, and amazing art as we showcase local artists, craftsmen, designers, and jewelers. It's a day to celebrate creativity!

Artist members who will be spotlighted:

Merriann Grant - fine jewelry
Nan Loncharich - fabric arts
Cia Williford - miniatures and mixed media arts
Katie Resch - painted woodwork
Helen Stetina - needlecrafts
Lisa Hertzog - country decorating

Additional guests will be announced prior to the event.

Location:
1104 Middletown Road
Greensburg, PA 15601
