JACKSON, Miss. — Natchez artist Carolyn Weir of Skysetter Designs will feature later this month at the Mississippi Craft Show at the Trademart in Jackson.
In 2009, Weir developed the unique and innovative concept of creating kinetic mobile sculptures with original watercolor paintings. Carolyn is currently working on a line of wood mobiles, utilizing wood that was harvested from a red cedar tree on her own Natchez property. She is also developing a line of mobiles for the porch or garden.
“Craftsmanship is integral to my work. It is really important to me to create quality art that is unique to my own style and will stand the test of time”, says Carolyn.
The Mississippi Craft show is a juried event showcasing strictly Mississippi Handmade art and craft. Weir will be taking her custom, hand painted, kinetic mobiles sculptures and will join a variety of artists hailing from 33 cities in 24 counties throughout Mississippi who will be displaying their wares for sale at the show on Saturday, Aug. 24 and Sunday, Aug. 25.
The event will benefit Animal Rescue Fund of Mississippi (ARF), a no-kill animal rescue shelter in Jackson. ARF will conduct an adoption drive as well as a pet food drive during the event. The Show is also hosting a blood drive on Sunday for Mississippi Blood Services.
Admission is $5.00, and children 12 and under are free. For more information, call (601) 790-0654, or go to www.mscraftshow.com .
