West Coast Craft Vendors
West Coast Craft features 250+ of the best contemporary artist and designer craftsmen and women exhibiting handmade and manufactured products influenced by the cultural and natural histories of the West Coast.
West Coast Craft Artists
West Coast Craft invites a selection of artists to create site-specific works at each show. We are proud to feature the work of the following artists:
Sally England is a Ojai, California based artist. Her work explores the ancient art form of macramé through the use of unconventional scale, material, and composition. The labor intensive process is meditative and grounding, as she taps into different archetypes through the use of pattern and shape. The results are thoroughly modern interpretations that are tactile and calming, asking us to reconsider the potential of the age-old technique. England's fiber-based installations and wall hangings have been presented in exhibitions and environments in the U.S and abroad, as well as in numerous online and print journals.
Charlie Brand is an artist and musician. He is the lead singer and guitarist of the Brooklyn based band, Miniature Tigers. His illustrations are detailed sketches; black and white or digitally colored, and often based on photographs taken while on tour. He is drawn to stories about people, and the subject matter of his work includes his girlfriend, bandmates, and people he photographs while on the road. His illustrations and animations have been featured in the Washington Post, Refinery29, and the Instagram blog, among other digital and print publications.
WCC is excited to partner with students and alumni from the MFA program in Applied Craft and Design at the Oregon College of Art and Craft, Pacific Northwest College of Art. MFA students Gina Rios and Sarah Brusstar will have a booth at the show, while alumni will exhibit MAKING SPACE, a collaborative project that utilizes the vertical plane of a wall, the horizontal plane of a table, and the intimate experience of a publication as support structures. MAKING SPACE will be located in a separate gallery within the Festival Pavilion.
