200 Master Beaders, 1 Project — ALL WEEKEND
This weekend maser beadwork artist Darcy Rosner and beaders from SweetBananberry will be at Three Sisters Sanctuary in Goshen adding another whimsical art installation to the outside gallery. They’ll be assembling a mosaic mannequin out of the beadwork of 200 participating artists from across the globe. The mannequin will become a regular feature at Three Sisters, but if you want to watch the artwork coming together and talk to the artists, you’ve got to visit this weekend.
