Edom – Where Art Comes to Life
Forty years ago potter Doug Brown setup his pottery studio in downtown Edom where he still creates and sells pottery. He encouraged other artists to build studios in town and many took his invitation. Throughout the years Edom has been home to a glass blower, wood workers, potters, jewelers, and leather crafters.
Potter Brown started the Edom Art Fair, which ran annually for more than 20 years. The Edom Art Fair became known as the premier venue for artists and a popular event for the community, but after so may years of work, the resident Edom artists decided to stop hosting the Art Fair.
In 2000, local merchants formed the Edom Area Chamber of Commerce, and their first goal was bringing an art festival back to Edom. The Edom Festival of the Arts bega in September of 2001 in the tradition of the original Art Fair: a juried art show featuring the best artists in the state and beyond.
