Dawn Rackowski Murray and John Rackowski - a brother & sister duo from Milwaukee, Wisconsin - have been surrounded by art all our lives. Our Grandfather was a talented landscape painter and our Dad is a regular at all of our events specializing in scroll saw woodworking. Our Mom has made everything from painted woodwork to outdoor wind spinners and also attends every show.
We have been involved in various creative projects ourselves.
Dawn followed in her Grandfather's footsteps at an early age and began painting landscapes. She now sells jewelry and creates a wide array of textile projects.
John has dabbled in art most of his life without ever diving full-on into one specific category. His three favorite forms of art to work on is drawing, glasswork and photography.
By 2012, we already had plenty of experience attending arts and craft fairs as artists. However, this is the year that things would change for us forever. Since our entire family was participating in various events throughout Southeastern Wisconsin, we decided to put our experience to good use and organize our own shows.
Brew City Crafters LLC was born.
By 2018, Tasha Laramore had already become a friendly & familiar face to the vendors at our events that she was officially welcomed in as our third owner & manager.
Dawn, John & Tasha are present at each event as we feel it is important to be there for our vendors for support and to show that there are approachable people that stand behind the Brew City Crafters LLC name.
From the very beginning, it's always been very important for us to make our events a success to not only the vendors and the visitors, but also for the community in general. We believe that is what separates our business from others. Our events are a blend between a celebration of art, creativity, and good will.
Thank you for coming along on this ride with us and we look forward to seeing you at the next show!
