Local artists create for a cause

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Over 30 local artists sell their homemade wares to help prevent homelessness and end hunger through MOM.

Artists wares will include handmade jewelry, pottery, paintings, fiber arts, baskets, woodwork, stained and blown glass, repurposed silverware, scarves, and more.

The event will be on Saturday, December 7 and Sunday, December 8. Saturday from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Creating for Causes, the group hosting the event, is a group of artists whose mission is to help publicize the work and raise funds for non-profits for which they are passionate, by holding art fairs.  Local artist and semi-retired psychologist, Jan Fulwiler, PhD, organized the first event in 2010.

MOM is a local non-profit organization that leads a community-wide effort to prevent homelessness and end hunger for our neighbors throughout Middleton, West Madison and Cross Plains.  Through business partners, affiliated churches, area schools, community service clubs, and numerous individuals, MOM provides food, clothing, housing assistance, emergency financial assistance, and special services for seniors.  All programs are provided free of charge to neighbors in need.
