First Annual WORLD (craft) FAIR
Want to avoid mall-induced panic attacks, put money back into the pockets of homegrown independent artists, and find something for every eccentric weirdo or picky Etsy shopper on your Christmas list? Then clear your calendar for Saturday, December 11, when Burlesque of North America and Permanent Art & Design Group host their first annual craft fair at their CO Exhibitions space in northeast Minneapolis. With Burlesque's discerning eye for edgy, thought-provoking design and intelligent lowbrow humor, this event will be skillfully curated, bringing the best and brightest local artisans together under one roof. This is a one-day-only holiday crafters' extravaganza. It will be a perfect time to pick up one of Amy Jo's headless trick-or-treat screenprint for the Melvins fan in your life, complement your holiday cheese balls with a little sweet and savory beef jerky from Cool Jerk, and score a serious piece of statement jewelry from Gretchen Grace to turn heads at your office holiday party. Music will be provided by BRLSQOTHEQUE DJs and friends. Food will also be available for purchase. (Art by Too Many Suitors)
