RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- The second annual Spring Artisan Show at Keeler Tavern Museum will take place this month on the museum’s campus. 

Show hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 25, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, April 26. Admission during the show’s regular hours is $10 per person ($8 per person with postcard or ad) and is good for both show days.

For those wanting a first look at the artisans’ works, an early bird breakfast will be offered from 8 to 11 a.m. Saturday. The cost for the buffet-style breakfast is $25 per person and includes show admission for both days. All proceeds benefit the Keeler Tavern Museum. 

Curated by VS Shows, the show’s 16 artisans feature a wide range of items, including reproduction furniture, fine decorative items, jewelry, folk art, high-fired stoneware, and other objects for indoor and outdoor use. Artisans from New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire complement a roster of high-caliber local artisans.

“Part of our mission at the museum is to make yesterday’s histor, including the objects that exemplify the lifestyle and culture of past eras, relevant for today’s world. These artisans do just exactly that, by hand-crafting objects that reflect the past but can be used and enjoyed today. Everyone should come, see, and talk to these incredible ‘makers’ about what they do and why they love doing it,” said Hildi Grob, executive director. 

The artisans’ displays will be found in the museum’s garden house and carriage barn, as well as in a large tent; all spaces are heated. Food and refreshments will be available for sale. There is limited on-site parking, with additional parking at the First Congregational Church, across the street.
