Jenna Faden and Jess Horton, recent Fine Arts graduates of Umass Amherst showed their recent work at the Duxbury Art Association Winter Craft Showcase. Together, they are pickled. They took a brief break from sales and knitting to show their work, saying “we’re really just grandmothers in disguise”, told some stories and returned to the yarn.

Jenna made friends with a pack of alpacas. They wouldn’t look at her until long after she started visiting with them. She used minimal photomanipulation, leaving the backgrounds intact.

Jess makes these neat birds, that were inspired by the suggestion of a child she was babysitting for.

This is the 36th year for the Duxbury Art Association’s Winter Craft Showcase, a juried show with artists and crafters from all over the Northeast.

Does your work bring out a story? How can you get your tale told?
