August 5 and 6 at the Lithia Artisans Market of Ashland

Emily Smith is a leather artist from New Orleans who specializes in journals.

The month of August is starting out scorching hot. We are still running strong down at the market with 31 artisans signed up to show over the course of the two day event. This weekend you will find woodwork, leather journals, fine art, photography, handcrafted jewelry of all kinds, quilts, kinetic sculpture, handpainted signs, clothing, glass work, and much more.

SAT 10-6 & SUN 11-5

We are excited to announce the addition of two new artists showing for the first time this weekend. Cindy Valor is a weaver and new artist at the market. She hails from Colorado but has recently made southern Oregon her home. She will be showing Saturday this weekend. Additionally, we are pleased that a new potter has joined our membership. Jess Volk is a ceramics artist who specializes in slip casting and marbled clay. Her egg shaped planters are really cool. She will be showing Sunday. We are happy to have new, unique, artists to add to our ranks. Welcome!

Featured in the photo above is a traveling artist from New Orleans, Emily Smith. Emily is out here on the west coast making the rounds to many of the bigger festivals. She found Ashland and got stuck, like so many. She will be showing her leather art along the creek again this weekend. Her journals are really unique, well crafted, and one of a kind. She showed for the first time last weekend and made a big impression with her art. I strongly urge you to come by and check out her wares as she is only here for a very limited time. We are glad you came back for another weekend.
