Brushy Creek Arts and Crafts competition prepared for March 19

A raffle will be held at the Brushy Creek Arts and Crafts Festival March 19 for a quilted purple heart wall hanging to raise money for an area girl with a medical condition that has forced her family to spend so much time at the children’s hospital. All proceeds from the raffle will go to the family.

Immediately after nearly a few years advertising his hand-cast iron work at craft shows across the south east, James and La’Shanta Barrow of The Bare Blacksmith determined they wanted to place their expertise to get the job done and present artists in the vicinity of their Matthews house an option to exhibit and offer their work in Jefferson County. And so the Brushy Creek Arts and Crafts Pageant was born. 

On March 19, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the few and 30 or extra regional artists, artisans and craftsmen will open up the next once-a-year competition at its new site at 6637 Highway 80 between Wrens and Waynesboro.  

James Barrow stated that this is a juried arts and crafts pageant. 

“We are only accepting legitimate artisans,” La’Shanta additional. “It has to be hand-created, property-grown or household-cooked. We’re not heading to have resale things. This is for regional artists and their revenue are their have.”
