Since there are five Fridays in November this year, 4th Friday comes before Thanksgiving. So instead of the DAY AFTER…exhibit we’ve renamed the annual event to THE PRE- THANKSGIVING ART AFFAIR. This is a day of shopping, music, and exhibits. Starting at 12 p.m. the artisans and fine craftsmen share handmade candles, soaps, jewelry, pottery and textiles - perfect for holiday gifts. Then at 7 p.m. the art show receptions and gallery talks begin lasting until 10 p.m. The exhibits continue through January 19, 2014. This event is free and open to the public. Parking is free on show night!
The Pre-Thanksgiving Art Affair will ease you into the holidays with good art, music, door prizes and shopping.
Starting at noon, in the main gallery, Ten Artisans and fine craftsmen will be displaying and selling unique and innovative artwork and gifts – all $50 and under. You’ll find soaps, textiles, candles, glass, pottery and jewelry. Meet Crystal Neilson-Hall - The Freckled Farm Soap Company, Cierra - Pretty Box, Stephen Lewis – Artisan Attic, Linda Vegas – Vegas Glass, Josi Hopkins – Soul Purpose, Imani Bilal – Venus Visuals and Gina Demmert – Jewelry.
The shops and artist studios will be open with special holiday savings.
From 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm, we’ll have art activities for the children. And of course there will be holiday cider and cookies to share.
At 7:00 p.m. the art shows receptions begin. The exhibits include:
