Massachusetts studio jeweler and designer Jenne Rayburn is among the jewelry artists exhibiting works at The Artisans' Market, an annual sale of local artists' work in Lexington, Massachusetts. The Lexington Arts and Crafts Society's 10th Annual Artisans' Market opens Saturday, July 26th, and runs through August 17th. The Society Gallery is located at 130 Waltham Street in downtown Lexington, Massachusetts. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday 10AM - 4PM and Sunday 12PM - 4PM.
Featuring new handcrafted jewelry from Rayburn's Dreamings Collection, metalsmith and enamel artist Jenne Rayburn is an enthusiastic supporter of local arts and artists. "The annual summer market is a great opportunity for customers and browsers to get to know a talented group of artists from many of the Society’s ten guilds," notes Rayburn. “It is a unique local event that enables us to meet both neighbors and tourists, and talk about our passion, which is also the work for sale.”
Jenne Rayburn is a member artist of the Metalworkers Guild at The Lexington Arts and Crafts Society. Membership in the Guild is by a jury process, and is for the lifetime of the juried member. "I am thrilled to participate in this annual event and support the LACS," said Rayburn. "Art and fine craft that is being made in artist collectives such as the LACS supports a vital part of our local community and economy, ensuring that there is a home for artistic pursuits and creative innovation."
Long known for promoting work by local artists living in Massachusetts and New England, exhibits at The Lexington Arts and Crafts Society showcase a range of artists across 10 guilds that create beautiful, quality work. The Lexington Arts and Crafts Society's unique community, facility and resources enable local artists to practice their craft, learn new skills and sell their creations at the Society's art gallery, which offers for sale original art and handmade crafts by local member artisans. With nearly 400 members, in ten guilds, the Lexington Arts and Crafts Society has provided a place where artists can gather, work, inspire one another and keep craft traditions alive for over 77 years.
