Join us for a celebration of handcrafted and homemade wares at the Arkell Museum & Canajoharie Library’s 2017 Holiday Art & Craft Fair. This year, our fair will take place on Saturday, November 18 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. We are excited to bring this wonderful event back for another year and look forward to showcasing the talent of our local artisans. We will also be sponsoring a basket raffle to support the “Haven for Hope”, which provides transitional housing for women in need.

This year our Holiday Art & Craft Fair will feature artisan craft vendors, the Library’s used book sale, the Palatine Literary Society luncheon to benefit their award to a graduating senior, a bake sale by our local Girl Scouts, free family activities, and a children’s toy and winter clothing drive to benefit the Salvation Army Toys for Tots program. The Arkell Museum will also be open for visitors at a discounted $5.00 admission with two wonderful new exhibitions, Masterworks and Masterworks on Paper featuring highlights from our collection.

Admission to the Holiday Art & Craft Fair will be free, and admission to the Arkell Museum will be discounted to $5.00. For more information, contact Curator of Education & Public Engagement, Jenna Peterson Riley at jriley@mvls.info or 518-673-2314.
