Massey display cedar and cop- per pest lights and Saenger hold a stoneware creation. Artists Continued from page 66 That outreach includes a pho- tography workshop, offered with the assistance of the Delaware Division of the Arts, to help mem- bers produce the types of slides and photographs needed to submit and market their work. With --October's workshop already full, information is being taken for the next workshop, tentatively sched- uI-ed for the start of the year. "The idea is to help them build a market by giving their work more exposure and by providing opportunities to network with consumers," Grover said. The Biggs Museum is increas- ing exposure by hosting a compe- tition of works by Delaware By Hand members. Winners' works will be on exhibit at the museum Oct. 25 through Jan. 7. Retail items will be available for sale and exhibited works will be offered for sale at the conclusion of the exhibit, Grover said. A consumer network is also developing. The open house and reception at the Studio On 24 attracted more than 100 people. Created as part of a statewide economic iniative in 2001, the purpose of Delaware By Hand is to promote artists and artisans to help them develop a larger market for their benefit and for the eco- nomic benefit of the state, said Barbara Rodgers, a member of the state Economic Development Office who attended the event. To reach that goal she helped recruit members for the first board of directors. Also attending was Tom Smith who owns Delaware Made, a gen- eral store in Dover that features items made by Delaware artists and artisans. "The quality of the work of these people reaches the level of international quality," Smith said. In addition to specialized stores, members exhibit and sell their works in private galleries and on their own.
