Shiny Fuzzy Muddy formed in 2003 to collaborate in creating events that bring their art to the people. The driving force and vision behind the non-profit collective comes from the group’s four core members (L to R) – Janna Hurtzig, Arleigh Wood, Frances Dickinson and Kari Woo. Initially drawn to each other’s aesthetic sensibilities, they found great support and inspiration in their collaboration and so it has lived on ever since!
Every year they present the SHINYFUZZYMUDDY show, which takes place the second weekend in December at Heritage Hall. With an effort made to seek out new artists, up to thirty guests are invited to exhibit and sell their work at this historic Main St. location. The common thread that ties the work together is the high quality of design, craftsmanship and material sensibility.
Created as an antidote to large-scale craft fairs, they aim to present a pleasant shopping (and selling!) atmosphere. With a decided lack of holiday music and kitschy decorations, patrons can be sure to find meaningful objects to enhance the quality of their lives and to meet the designer/makers directly.
