The event, hosted by Rhody Craft, takes place at Hope Artiste Village, 1005 Main St., on Sunday, Nov. 10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The juried craft show features local and affordable art and goods, says organizer Kim Clark, owner of Rhody Craft. What sets Craftopia apart from other craft shows? "It's fun (and) festive," Clark said. "It's juried but also affordable. We look for fun, colorful, affordable art by the people for the people."

It was a glossy, hardcover See RHEA, Page 7 A watercolor painting of an indigo bun- ting bird by Pawtucket artist HOLLY WACH, whose art will be displayed at this year's Craftopia event. When asked about the price range of items, Clark said they're anywhere from $1 to $100.
