Art Basel postponed since Switzerland closes borders

Art Basel, one of the art world’s biggest events, has been postponed due to the spread of coronavirus pandemic in Europe. It was announced that the four-day event will be rescheduled to take place in September.

Last year, the art fair attracted more than 93,000 visitors from around the world. This year, it was due to take place in June. However, following the policy of tightened travel restrictions across Europe, a press release of organizers said that the decision to postpone was reached “in close consultation with a wide range of collectors, gallerists, partners, and external experts, with the aim of protecting the health and safety of our community, as well as ensuring that the event will be attended by the biggest possible number of collectors, arts professionals, and curators from our global network.”

Art Basel is one of the major events in the cultural calendar, offering more than 250 galleries the opportunity to court collectors in an industry that is still heavily dependent on in-person sales. Organizers haven’t announced details about compensation or refunds for exhibiting galleries and ticket holders.

Global Director of Art Basel Marc Spiegler suggested that the new fair dates, currently set for September 17-20, might change once again, depending on how dynamic the Covid-19 situation is.

Presently, the Swiss government’s ban on public events only runs till April 19 while Art Basel was not set to begin until June 18. The number of confirmed cases in Switzerland, which borders northern Italy, keeps growing. The country has thus far reported about 10,000 infections – more than both the UK and South Korea – with 153 dead cases due to the virus.

Art Basel has joined a growing list of art fairs to be postponed or canceled because of the virus. These cancellations are likely to have a significant economic impact, with fairs responsible for more than $16 billion in transactions in 2019.

Children craft holidays for the homeless

The Giving Tree is back and children came to Oakville Grocery Store in downtown Healdsburg to get the ball rolling on the project, now in its third year.

The Giving Tree starts with paper ornaments that are crafted by the children. Members of the homeless community then write down what they would like on the ornaments before putting them up on the tree for residents to fulfill. The presents are then taken out to the homeless community by Reach for Home’s Rick Cafferata.

The tree project has been organized each year by local homeless advocate Gail Jonas and the kids were getting into the spirit Nov. 13 as they grabbed scissors and got to work.

Sophia Jonas said it was her second year helping create the ornaments. She said that this year, she came out with friends and family for the first time.

“I think it’s fun to make them and just spend time with people,” Sophia Jonas said.

After the ornaments have their gifts listed on them, she said she liked to see what was on people’s wish lists and helping spread the word to people who might be interested in donating.

For Julia Dolph, this was another way to help her community. Previously, she ran a dog walking service for her neighbors.

“I think this is a really good way to show our dedication to the community,” she said.

And there are sweet rewards for the help, too, as Josh Proctor pointed out. A slew of cookies was available to help keep the energy up.

Having kids help with The Giving Tree is a big part of the project, Cafferata said.

“I have them (gift recipients) to where they break down and cry. Cause somebody gave them something and especially something that they asked for. Not just something that somebody gives you out of the blue.” Cafferata said. “It’s wonderful to get the younger generation involved. They go home and teach their parents a thing or two.”

The kids’ work pays off, too.

“Last year I got a really cool pair of boots,” said Lucky, a member of the homeless community.

Lucky said that he appreciates the energy the kids bring to the project.

The first year the tree went up, it had 20 ornaments, Cafferata said. Last year, there were around 30. There was a concern from last year, however, when shortly after the gifts from the tree were given, there was a police sweep of camps, which possibly left people without their new gifts.

New Arts and Crafts Spots for Kids in New York City

It’s time to get messy, creative, and make some arts and crafts. Arts and crafts classes give kids the opportunity to develop some new skills and unleash their imagination. In this article, we introduce two new arts and crafts spots where kids can get creative in New York City.

The Craft Studio

174 Duane St.




Regulars and newcomers rejoice: The Craft Studio has a new spot in Tribeca. The studio was originally intended as a pop-up, it is now officially here to be a permanent addition to the Craft Studio family. The welcoming environment has made the studio a favorite in its original version, and it is really warming hearts in the new nabe.

The Tribeca spot is similar to the UES location such as Toddler Art and Little Hands, where the littlest artists can get down and dirty with some fun arts and crafts. Besides the usual classes, it also offers fun classes like The Coolest Art Craft Ever, introducing kids to edgy and fun new crafting techniques and materials, or Creative Movement and Art, combining jumping and active play with art-making.

How to Find Local Art and Craft Shows To Take Part in


Finding local craft shows is an effective way to make a living selling what you make. Regional shows help you save your travel costs and also are a great place for connecting with fellow makers. Selling at local craft shows can be a great way to build a loyal fan base for your products by putting you in front of customers that want to support the makers in your region. However, it is important to choose the right ones because each craft show has its own flavor as well as attracts a different type of buyer. So, you must spend your time learning about all shows in your area to decide to spend your time applying to and hauling your products the right ones.

Here are some ways to find the local art and craft shows that are suitable for you:

Etsy Teams

Many Etsy sellers don’t know that the best way to find local shows is on the site itself. The Teams section of Etsy has groups that are located throughout the U.S. with each team’s own forum being where members interact. Many local teams have an ongoing thread listing upcoming events of interest to crafters, such as SF Etsy. Try to find an active team with such a thread and access to upcoming events in your area.

Event Listing Websites

There are many event listing websites which keep track of craft shows throughout the U.S. You can get basic information on events from them and register for an account when you need to get more details. Here are a few event listing sites:

Community Facebook Pages

Many neighborhoods have their own Facebook pages for local makers to share information. On these pages, you can often find smaller organizations post when they are searching for vendors for upcoming events or you can let the community know that you are looking for art and craft shows and crowdsource a list of leads to check out.
