A space opened up for Nutmeg Designs mosaics and stained glass, at the Audubon Art & Craft Festival, July 17th and 18th, 2010, from 10-5 in Hawley, PA. Known regionally as the finest Art and Craft show in the Poconos, this non-profit event raises funds for student scholarships and environmentally threatened areas in the Northern Poconos.
The Festival takes place in the Wallenpaupack School Complex that is located on Rt. 6 two miles south east of Hawley, PA on the eastern shore of beautiful Lake Wallenpaupack. A rare breed, this show is held indoors in air conditioned coolness, with free parking and $5.00 admission fee.
Stratoz is creating some very hip bird stained glass suncatchers, and I have a full stock of mosaics to catch the eye. When we lived in Dunmore, we used to take day trips to Hawley, and then later vacations, and always enjoyed it. Be sure to check out the Settlers Inn with an Arts & Crafts interior, and fabulous food from local farmers–they were doing “local” in 1996 when we first visited!
Our friend Cynthia Underhill of My Point of View Photography told us about this show.
A Wildlife Art Show will run in conjunction with the festival , and activities such as:
- The Delaware Valley Raptor Center will have live raptors – hawks, owls and falcons on site.
- The Pocono Wildlife Rehabilitation Center will present live animals and an entertaining presentation on the animals and their behavior.
- The Binghamton Zoo will bring a variety of animals, for people to observe close up, and ask the experts questions.
- The Northeast PA Audubon Society will have an education table with free items for the family and a program on the NAS Forest Campaign.
