When the Armonk Outdoor Art Show began, Kennedy was president and West Side Story was a top-grossing film. In honor of its 50th anniversary, the Armonk Outdoor Art Show will not only host its annual event with 188 juried artists, but it’ll also be the center of a weeklong, town-wide celebration with discounts, specials, and activities going on at local Armonk businesses. Visit armonkoutdoor artshow.org and go to “50 Ways to Love the Art Show.”

The Westchester Craft Show returns with a new name, befitting its status as one of the most respected shows in the area. One it deserves, too—more 100 juried contemporary crafts artists head to the show to display their fiber art, jewelry, and home furnishings and décor. The show is produced by Crafts America, LLC, which only hosts three exclusive events across the country (the other two are Washington, D.C., and Palm Beach).

How many times have you loved some kind of home décor item, bought it, brought it home, and just couldn’t figure out what to do with it? As part of the Chappaqua Antiques and Design Show—which features wares from more than 50 exclusive dealers—interior designers will be on hand for free consultations about mixing antiques and modern accents in your home décor. And, if you think you have something valuable on your hands, appraiser Jon Felz will also be around to appraise your attic treasures.
More than 250 leading artists showcase their wares at Fall Crafts at Lyndhurst, but it’s worth the price of admission just to stroll the grounds of Lyndhurst and take advantage of those Hudson River views (September 16 to September 18). Take the stage at the Performing Arts Center—not as a performer, but as a shopper—when Crafts On Stage brings artists into the spotlights (November 5 and November 6).
