Assistance League of Pasadena has operated its Craft Fair Gift Shop featuring senior artists and crafters for over 64 years. Assistance League (through its Craft Fair Gift Shop) assists over 150 senior exhibitors who excel in many artistic mediums, and this year Craft Fair Gift Shop has initiated a “Featured Artists of the Month” program to highlight local talents.
November’s two featured artists are Mary Holley and Soly Diaz. Mary’s critically acclaimed bead weaving and ethnically inspired jewelry has won her fans through the United States. A local resident for over 25 years, Ms. Holley has dabbled in many art mediums but loves the fluidity of the bead weaving and creating art that can be worn. Soly Diaz specializes in fused glass work. A Pasadena resident for over 20 years, Ms. Diaz is a retired research chemist who started exploring the properties of glass and light just five years ago. Her colorful glass pieces are not only beautiful, but often practical as well.
Come support Craft Fair’s Featured Artists and browse through the work of so many other talented craftsmen and artists. Gifts and personal treasures abound at reasonable prices that support senior citizens in the arts. Open Wednesday through Saturday 11 am-4 pm, Craft Fair is located at 820 E California Blvd in Pasadena. Sales support this Assistance League of Pasadena program.
