The Artisans United Craft Gallery at 4022 Hummer Road, Annandale, displays amazing pieces by incredibly talented artists and crafters from Annandale and throughout the region. It also happens to be a great place to find a special gift for Mother’s Day.
An open house at the gallery Saturday showcased work from the National Capital Art Glass Guild. Future open houses will focus on artists from the other 10 guilds that are part of Artisans United. The guilds specialize in weaving, knitting, carving, woodturning, fiber arts, quilting, polymer clay, basketry, and handcrafting, as well as glass.
