2021 Paulette Rush Arts & Craft Show Winners

One of the best arts & crafts shows in the area. 2021 witnessed many fine artisans returning for yet another Walnut Valley Festival. Many of the more than 80 displays will be first-timers, producing drawings, paintings, jewelry, woodcrafts, glass, metalwork, baskets, pottery, weaving/spinning, leather, herbals & soaps, childrens’ items, a number of food-related items and much more. Artists, crafters, and luthiers come to Walnut Valley from over 20 states… Washington to Alabama, California to Pensylvania, and lots of local favorites.  Below are the 2021 Arts & Craft Show Winners, as judged by an independent panel of artists.
