Shop America's Handmade Market and support artist entrepreneurs this fall at the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival! Sugarloaf returns to the Maryland State Fairgrounds just north of Baltimore October 13-15 for a weekend of artistic appreciation and entertainment for collectors and enthusiasts of all ages.
Internationally acclaimed artist and trained architect Tomás Saraceno uses iridescent panels, spider webs, and inflatable orbs in three fascinating sculptures on view. The centerpiece of the exhibition, Entangled Orbits, transforms the East Lobby with clusters of iridescent-paneled modules held in place by strings reminiscent of a spider web. Appearing somewhat like bubbles, these spherical modules evoke the artist’s visionary plans for “cloud cities,” which look to naturally occurring forms for inspiration and might provide environments for future human habitation.

A rarity in North America, the Baltimore Mandolin Trio is a "Trio Romantico" in the Italian tradition, combining bowlback mandolins with classical guitar. Their repertoire includes many pieces composed for this combination by mandolin giants Raffaele Calace and Carlo Munier, as well as original compositions and transcriptions of classics from the symphonic and operatic literature. Their arrangement of "Stormy Weather" has been heard many times on the public radio program "Marketplace," signalling a downturn in the stock market.
