WESTON - The 2012 Weston Craft Show's "Peoples Choice Award" was recently presented to Trenny Robb and Bob Michaud of "High Beams Lighting." From their studio in Sutton, Vt, these two artistans handcraft one of a kind copper and brass lighting, with lampshades created using real leaves, petals, mica, fabric and parchment. The award was presented at Epoch Gallery in Manchester, where their work can be viewed.

The recently concluded 2012 Weston Craft Show raised approximately $20,000 to be used for maintenance and repair of Weston's several museums and Cold Spring Park, which suffered extensive damage from tropical Storm Irene.

Housed in the historic Weston Playhouse, this annual event showcases 45 of Vermont's finest artisans, and is organized and run by dozens of local volunteers. The dates of the 2013 show are Oct. 11 -13, Columbus Day weekend.
