Ceramic Artist & Crafters Mary Madison Guttridge & Leslie Madison, will be at BarronFest 2021!
"My mother (Mary) has been doing ceramics since the 1960’s. When I was born I was constantly by her side playing with the clay. As I got older I realized I enjoy not only ceramics but all types of mediums such as wood, glass, fabric anything that will keep me busy. We continue to concentrate on ceramics as our main medium but still incorporate many other things into our shows." -Leslie Madison

Artisan Jeweler Gina Krehel of "JeweledArt" will be at BarronFest 2021!
"As a lifelong artist, Gina always is involved in different types of design and art. From drawing to interior design; to fashion and painting using several different mediums. About 10 years ago, she started to take an interest in designing and handcrafting jewelry which is how JeweledArt came into fruition. JeweledArt jewelry is one-of-a-kind.
Born in NJ and raised in a small town, Gina always found the need to branch off and be and do something different than others. She would always find a way to become involved in art. Gina also at one point was commissioned to paint custom art for residential spaces.
Working full time for an architecture and interior design firm based in NYC, Gina still finds time to paint, make jewelry and be the lead singer in a classic rock and blues cover band."

Fabric Artist & Quilter Martha Landy will be at BarronFest 2021!
"Martha Landy has been sewing since she was old enough to hold a needle. She learned from her grandmother, mother and aunts. In the spirit of original recycling Martha uses scraps of fabrics to create her designs. She bases her designs on traditional patch work patterns and adds her own modifications. She works exclusively in 100% cotton fabric. Although her items are useful, they are also decorative. A quilt that can be on the lap of someone in a wheelchair can also be wall hanging or a sofa throw. It brings Martha joy to see someone appreciating and using her work."

Painter, Nitu Pilania Dahiya will be at BarronFest 2021!

"My oil and acrylic artwork are primarily centered around contemporary and abstract styles. My paintings revolve around nature and animals, with bold and vibrant colors. As much as I enjoy picking up a paintbrush, I also enjoy using graphite charcoal pencils. Over the last two years, I have been working on my paintings and concentrating on drawing. I love art and being artistic - I feel it is what I am called to do and gives me immense pleasure."

Pottery, Ceramics & Studio Artist Connie Elek will be at BarronFest 2021!
[Connie's] love of nature transforms clay into beautiful functional works spanning teapots, bowls, mugs, plates, soup tureens, goblets, and birdbaths.
Her portfolio of non-functional and decorative pieces illustrates a unique display of handcrafted sculptures and urns. Nonfunctional work is created using various methods and materials. The colors and designs are formed by horsehair, feathers, seaweed, "found objects" metal shavings, pine cones and whatever else may be in the area. She also creates unique fruit and cheese plates from recycled glass bottles which are "slumped" in her kiln. In the last few years, she has painted on glassware and canvas. Her canvas work features vibrant underwater scenes from nature.

Mixed Media Artist Margarete Naperski will be at BarronFest 2021!

Born into an immigrant family from Austria, Margarete spent time learning from her father’s commercial art business in New Jersey, learning to be a sign artist at his side.
Margarete spent years perfecting pottery skills pursuing a Fine Arts degree at Mercer County. She began painting and collaging later in life. . .[and] her education still includes ongoing workshops and
personal study, while teaching collage, assemblage and clay classes. Now, she juggles time as a mixed-media artist creating from recycled materials and is also active in the dance community
teaching and performing with her students as Tehani MidEast and Polynesian Dance Co.
“Everything has a story, and collage is a favorite way to visually tell stories. My work asks the viewer to look past the obvious surface, to scratch beneath layers and let the accumulated bits speak.” -Margerete Naperski
