Go, West!

We are proud to announce Philadelphia's newest craft event: GO WEST! Craft Fest. Presented by VIX Emporium and the West Philadelphia Crafter's Network, GO WEST! is the best that Philly's local craft scene has to offer. Find jewelry, accessories, visual art, ceramics, clothing, cards and more by up to 40 artists, plus live family-friendly music by Jay Sand of All Around This World. The Fest is in Cedar Park, located on Baltimore Avenue between 49th and 50th, from noon to 5pm. The music is at 3:30. The GO WEST! Craft Fest, formerly known as Satellite Second Saturday, will occur again in the fall and also in December.

Afterwards at VIX Emporium, join local illustrator Pragya Kothari for "The Things Spring Brings", an exhibition of some of her latest prints and one-of-a-kind 3-D artworks. Her work is characterized by  bright pops of vivid color and whimsical motifs like birds (often in unlikely poses), flowers and food. It has been a great success at VIX and we are happy to welcome Ms. Kothari to help us usher in the Spring. Meet the artist and enjoy wine and light snacks from 5-8 at VIX Emporium, 5009 Baltimore Avenue, 1/2 block from the Craft Fest.

Stay tuned for profiles about some of the artists we're excited to welcome. Want to vend your work? See this page for details.
