Inn Street Artisans Revival Memorial Day Spring Fest Art Show May26th, 2018

Approved by a unanimous city council vote and stepping out beyond the shadows of Yankee Homecoming, the Inn Street Artisans Revival will kick off its 2018 ‘independent season’ with a special ‘one day’ Memorial Day Spring Fest on Saturday, May 26th, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. An expanded schedule for several more shows will run through the remainder of the year.

The Artisans Revival Memorial Day show will feature over ten local talented artisans that will exhibit their wares from metal smiths to watercolor paintings and photographs. The season’s premier will open with return favorites Steve Perlmutter, Ryan Lonergan of Third Shift Fabrications, Amy Sciuto of ‘Amy’s Creations’, Plum Islander artist and co-chair of the Inn Street Artisans Revival, Sandra Turner, and the Artisans Revival founder John Brown of the Spirit of Newburyport.

The shows will also feature newcomers to the revival such as John Davis of Vermont Rocks, Kym O’Brien ‘Hidden Hearts’ hypetufa’s, and the Sea Glass Jewelry of Renee Vartabedian. Watercolorist David Ten-Ecyk will make a special presentation, along with Seaside Design’s Dave Valle.

The Inn Street Artisans Revival Memorial Day show will be the first of seven shows in an expanded 2018 schedule, including the next ‘Inn Street Artwalk’ on June 23rd and 24th.

The Inn Street Artisans will return to their roots to celebrate their special nine day extravaganza show during the 3rd annual Yankee Homecoming Inn Street Artisans Revival, which by the way, has incorporated the one day Market Square Craft day on Tuesday July 30th, 2018 under their umbrella of creative supervision.

In 2013, Newburyport became the nineteenth community in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to receive a ‘Cultural District’ designation. It is the Artisans Revival mission to raise awareness of the invaluable contributions to a co-creative city economy by utilizing local artisan small business.
