In the summer of 2006, seARTS held it’s first Jewelry Design Salon led by Claire Sanford featuring a range of jewelry artists that included:
- Mary Hughes & Caro-Gray Bosco
- Beth Williams
- Jacqueline Ganim-DeFalco
- Betsy Frost
- Claire Sanford
- Marcia & Tony Settipani
- John Bojoras
- Annabel Wildrick
Out of this salon grew a Holiday Show & Sale that was first hosted at the Pleasant Street Tea Company.
Quickly outgrowing that space, the group moved its show to the Sawyer Free Library’s Saunder’s House. The seARTS Wearable Art Holiday Show & Sale was held annually during Gloucester’s historic Middle Street Walk. Each year, the group has increased its sales and has topped $10,000 in recent years. The group is now focused on the CWA Runway show and thanks the Sawyer Free Library for its collaboration from 2006 through 2014. Many thanks to all the participating artists and the Sawyer Free Library for hosting seARTS.
