Scintilla is a unique event, curating a market of highlycrafted local artisan made objects for discerning collectors. The projectfeatures works by Wenatchee’s finest artists, who blend artistic expression andextraordinary craftsmanship.
The Scintilla Project gathers together ten of the area’spremière artists, recognized regionally and nationally for their excellence inart and design of many forms.
In a first of its kind event, respected local artists wereselectively invited to make a range of their works of art and design availablefor this event. They work in silver, ebony, cashmere, encaustic, clay,grass, waxed linen, paper, fibers, felt, oil paint, wool, silk and words. Theymake by hand, jewelry, paintings, wearable art, baskets, cards, sculpture,scarves, ceramic vessels and poetry chapbooks. Each object d’art is made withthe deliberate intention of artistry and attention to detail which sets theirwork apart.
These artists work and live in our beautiful Cascadefoothills, along the Wenatchee and Columbia Rivers. Many residents areunfamiliar with the quality and quantity of the varied and excellent artisticexpressions that are created here, since the works of these artists usuallyleave the valley for urban art markets, or pass directly into the hands ofcollectors.
Shopping Scintilla is an opportunity for people interested ingifting unique hand-made art, one of a kind or short series objects that are anantidote to mass produced expectations.
When you purchase from the Scintilla Project, you'll takehome unique original works of art -- AND you'll have the satisfaction ofknowing that 10% of the purchase price goes to support the mission and programsof the MAC Gallery on the campus of Wenatchee Valley College.
