2017 Artisans Tent Application

If you have any questions, please email Adrian at [email protected]

In 2007, the Lexington Farmers’ Market was pleased to provide tent space for local artisans.  Each week four artisans are invited to share two tents to display their work and provide items for sale.  The selection includes a variety of work, from jewelry and ceramics to fiber-arts and hand-crafted furniture.

We invite you to stop by the market and view the work of these creative and talented individuals.

Epoca

Artist: Ania Davis

My motto: “There is Beauty in Simplicity”
 
I am passionate about natural beauty and history of Baltic amber. I design around the amber, as not to destroy its inner beauty. This ancient gem is accompanied with subtle presence of brushed sterling silver, 22k gold over sterling and other natural stones/elements necessary to make for a simple, minimal, pure, yet dynamic look.
           
Amber…Romantic…Magical…Warm…Eternal…

Eyes of the World Photography
http://eyesoftheworld.zenfolio.com/

Artist: Terri Ackerman

My intention is to capture and emphasize the beauty of local landscapes and wildlife all around us.

We are always dashing around, way too busy, and then suddenly a magnificent blue heron sweeps across the river. During moments like these, time seems to stop for a few magical moments.

In addition to landscapes and wildlife, I sometimes create abstract patterns from the water, sky, or leaves, by intentionally blurring the focus, using high or low lighting, or approaching from a weird angle. For example I love the way light was streaking in behind the Great Blue Heron in “Heron in Shimmer”.

Freehand Cards & Sculpture
http://elizabethmandrioli.com/

The beauty of nature is always calling to me, from the graceful red winged black bird in flight, the stately presence of a barred owl or the stunning elegance of an Iris.  I enjoy trying to capture their essence in my favorite medium pastel and colored pencil.   I’ve been selling my work as note cards locally since 2007.

I have several different lines a simple ‘Birthday line” with some humorous captions and the “cattitude line” especially targeted to cat lovers like myself, Woof Wisdom, Inspiration, Thank You, Holidays, All Occasion Card and lots of Bird Cards.  My card catalogue is constantly evolving and changing to reflect the seasons and holidays and capture our beautiful world.

Images, Voyages, Impressions
http://lecomtedominique.com/accueil.html

Dominique Leconte spent his early years in Rambervillers, a small town in Les Vosges (France) In 1984, after a two years sabbatical devoted to study many forms of visual art at Ecole de l’Image in the nearby town of Epinal, he started to exhibit oils, acrylics, and etchings. After getting master’s degrees in French as a Foreign Language and Philosophy, Dominique came to the USA – by way of Cambodia between 1992 and 1994, to teach in a private school near Boston. That is when he decided to specialize in linocuts and woodcuts, mainly by lack of proper studio space. Photography, which he had always used as a visual travel log, became the base of my work. He is represented in private and public collections in Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Ecuador, England, France, Italy, Japan, Norway, Sweden, and the USA.
