This weekend and next, local and national artists and artisans exhibit their 3-D craft works in Wragg Square on Meeting Street between Charlotte Street and Ashmead Place.
The show is coordinated by Dorinda Harmon, Vicki Vigneault and Kasey Briggs.
A jury panel selected 117 craft art professionals to participate.
Their work includes a variety of crafts such as jewelry, clay, fibers, wooden toys and some other unusual things.
"People may not ever expect we have a broom maker," said Harmon, referring to the work of artist Marlow Gates. "How often do you see someone that collects all the materials and then creates folk art like that?"
Harmon estimated that about 60 percent of the artists were in the show in past years, but they are always bringing something new.
Nancy Roth, the original coordinator of the show, which got its start 35 years ago, is back to participate as an artist with her polymer clay jewelry this year.
The craft artists will be on hand, meeting the public and talking about their work. Five to eight demonstrations are presented on weekend days and awards are being given for different craft categories.
"It is just a very nice walk-through and enjoyable experience," Harmon said. "People may find something beautiful they can't live without, so they take it home with them."
Admission is $3 for adults on Fridays and Saturdays, and $1 on Sundays. Children and seniors get in free.
