About Shiny Fuzzy Muddy:
Shiny Fuzzy Muddy formed in 2003 as a non-profit collective to create events and to bring art to the people. The group’s four core members and local makers, Janna Hurtzig, Kari Woo, Arleigh Wood and Frances Dickinson, annually plan the SHINYFUZZYMUDDY show, which takes place the second weekend in December at Heritage Hall. With an effort made to seek out new artists, up to thirty guests are invited to exhibit and sell their work at this historic Main St. location. The common thread that ties the work together is the high quality of design, craftsmanship, material sensibility and professionalism.
