Artist of the Month: Madelyn Posey

Hedonism is about all sensory pleasure and at the beginning of each month, our Chocolate and Ice Cream shops appeal to not only our senses of smell and taste, but also to that of sight through the work of local artists.

For the month of December, we have the great pleasure of featuring the art of our own Madelyn Posey. The Webster native is the proud owner of Little Button Craft & Press, a unique gift shop and craft store with its own letterpress. Little Button joins a handful of other small businesses in the South Wedge with neighbors such as Purple Painted Lady, thread, and Fashion Fitted. Each business adds its own sense of craft into the creative neighborhood –whether it’s art, beer, food, home décor or fashion.

December is a busy month for Posey, as she gears up for this art show full of Christmas crafts and organizes the final details for the South Wedge holiday craft show. “A Handmade Holiday” will bring together more than 50 local artists and makers, who will offer their handmade items. Slated for Saturday Dec. 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the craft show will coincide with the “It’s a Wonderful Life in the South Wedge” festival.

The majority of the vendors are from right here in the Flower City with many of their items made from their own hands and in small batches, infusing personality into each individual item. Why buy from a big-box store when there’s a crowd of crafters that provides truly local and authentic gifts?

Posey’s exhibit, “Christmas Crafts,” will officially open on Friday Dec. 4 and will remain displayed in the ice cream shop for the month of December. All of the proceeds from the art exhibit benefit Posey. rf
