Old Town’s Art and Craft Show Oct. 3-4

The Art & Craft Show Old Town is a free weekend event taking place 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 3, and Sunday, Oct. 4, in San Diego.

The show attracts art and fine craft aficionados and collectors from San Diego and outlying regions and strives every year to set the standard for quality, variety, innovation and sheer scope of art on display, as well as an entertainment line-up, special exhibits and a wine, craft beer, and tequila garden.

When hunger strikes, guests have a variety of restaurants to choose from throughout the quaint neighborhood of historic Old Town.

Here is a peek at a few of the talented artists whose work you will have a chance to enjoy at this year’s event:

• Amigo Metal by Ramon Velasquez crafts sculptures and wall hangings out of 24-gauge metal, with melted brass and copper accents. He paints them with weatherproof automobile paint, and his largest pieces measure up to 12 feet in diameter.

• Jen and Jeff Fine Art by Jennifer Rugge and Jeff Hodges combines oil and acrylic painting, paper collage, photography, and hand-dyed fabrics to create beautiful landscapes, seascapes, and animal portraits.

• Original Sin Jewelry by Margaret Aden uses non-traditional settings to show off focal points through an adapted basket weave using metal gossamer threads. Aden is known for incorporating skeleton keys into her jewelry and other vintage objects.
