(The Picket)-Artists exhibited their work Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 2 and 3, at the War Memorial Building at the monthly crafts market sponsored by the Shepherdstown Community Club.

Held the first weekend of each month, the Handmade Market features gift options including pottery dishes, jewelry, glassware and woodcarving.

The market is open to new artists and signing up to participate is easy to do through the market’s website,

Beginning in December, the crafts market is open every weekend.

Artist Rachel Cammer of Darling Dots Design, said she participates three to four times yearly because of the market draws a large crowd. “I’m usually here about three, sometimes four, times a year.” Cammer said.

Ceramic artist Allison Cook with Delaney Clay Art said the event was ideal for artists because it was indoors out of the weather. “It’s indoors which makes setting up a lot easier and we don’t have to worry about the weather.” Cook said.

Painter Toni-Kay Dye and her son Michael Dye, a woodcarver, said they enjoyed participating because the artists and customers were able to get to know each other.
