March is undoubtedly the month of the artist on Cape Cod this year. The Cotuit Center for the Arts and the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce is hosting a special exhibit, Sourcebook of Architectural and Design Elements Handcrafted on Cape Cod, featuring custom home furnishings and items created by master craftsmen and artists who reside on Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. The Sourcebook was developed to be a resource for builders, interior designers, and home owners looking for unique, local items for their homes and businesses.
The exhibit runs March 11-27 and among the items displayed are custom tiled sinks, stonework, tapestries, stained glass, wooden tables, and iron furniture all made on Cape Cod. Visitors can purchase the Sourcebook for $55 with $5 going to benefit Habitat for Humanity chapters on the Cape. A complimentary wine and cheese reception will be held Wed. March 17. Tell your friends and their friends that this is the opportunity to shop original and keep their business local. Not to mention you get a great coffee table book full of one-of-a-kind eye candy!
