Garrison Art Center's Riverside Crafts Fair is one of the most well established high-quality crafts fairs in the region. Set on the edge of the Hudson River just an hour north of New York City in Garrison, New York. With majestic river views, the fair offers a truly exquisite spot to shop and is a premier event in the Hudson Valley for collectors of hand-made traditional and alternative craft. An intimate fair, this year featuring 50+ juried artists participate with furniture, photography, jewelry, gourmet food, glass items, textiles, fine art, ceramics, wooden utensils, tableware, and more. Visitors can take the train to the fair which is steps from the MTA Metro North Hudson Line. Free parking at the Metro North train station, plus a free shuttle service makes this a popular event for those who live near the river towns from NYC to Poughkeepsie.
"When you buy from an artist/maker, you are buying more than just an object/painting. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks and months of frustration and moments of pure joy. You aren't just buying a thing. You are buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a moment of someone’s life. Most importantly, you are buying the artist more time to do something they are passionate about."--unknown
