Twice a year Tamarack, hosts an artisan jury session to allow more fine craft and fine art artisans to sell their products at the facility.

The most recent artisan jury session took place March 27, and 21 new artisans from 17 counties (including Wirt, Tucker and Berkeley) were welcomed into the fold.

Artisans' works are critiqued by a panel of master crafts people at each session.

"In addition to other marketing outlets, these individuals are now eligible for many opportunities and programs to further develop and grow their businesses," said Robin Watson, artisan services coordinator for Tamarack. "We are excited to welcome this group of talented people into the Tamarack family.

"Two artisans were ‘accepted with conditions,' and will be brought into the system once they have completed revisions required by jurors."

The newest group of artisans work includes: furniture, photography, wood and toys, textiles, pottery, turkey calls, bronze sculpture and glass.
