The 33rd Annual Cabbagetown Art and Crafts Show

Thank you to everyone who came out to enjoy the Cabbagetown Art and Crafts show this year.  The weather Gods were on our side and the sun was shining!  Randy Brown, Founder of the show started things going by ringing the bell at 8:00 am Friday morning, and until Sunday night, Riverdale Park West was booming…  top quality artisans and visitors, and thanks to the Duncan Hopkins Trio and Jennifer Kruk’s family entertainment, the event had a great vibe.  Thanks also for the great turnout of everyone who visited the Vaccinate TO tent to get their boosters – the team was busy!

Congratulations to our top artisan award recipients:

iya, In these Veins

Ruth is a multidisciplinary artist creating conceptual pieces and bespoke woven cloth exploring themes of brokenness, hope and transformation. Her work is a tactile meditation on the paradoxical coexisting experience of beauty and pain, often felt most keenly in our darkest moments.  @makingruth

Second prize, sponsored by Mary Martin

Celina Kang, Celina K Studio

Celina is a ceramic artist from Toronto. Her work has been inspired by nature, especially stone, sand, clay, all sorts of mineral forms from the earth. Simplicity, curiosity, perfection out of imperfection are my belief on my work. I want you to feel that powerful radiance of them.

We look forward to seeing you again next year!
