Local Art Abounds!
The holiday season is upon us and you know you need to go shopping. Are you really going to find anything interesting at the same old big box stores? Why don't you check out some of the unusual items made by our local art community. There are a number of opportunities, so use the following information to make your plans.
1) This Saturday (11/23) from 10-3 is the incomparable Whimsical Women fall show at a lovely farm in Pfafftown (2233 Vienna-Dozier Rd). There will be free food, live music, hayrides and the wonderful art created by over 70 local female artists. There is a $1 admission fee, but I promise it will be worth it! You can find more information on the Whimsical Women blog. Be sure to check the blog if the weather is questionable, Sunday is the raindate. If you come out, please stop by my booth and say 'hi.' If I'm not there I'm likely working my shift at the checkout tables.
2) Sawtooth's Deck the Halls shop will be open from 12/6-12/21 in the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts located at 251 N. Spruce Street in Winston-Salem. Hours are 11-7 Monday through Friday, 10-4 on Saturday and 11-4 on Sunday (12/8 only, closed 12/15). While you are there, stop by to see the Associated Artists juried exhibit in the Womble Carlyle Gallery also at the Milton Rhodes Center from 12/5/13-1/4/14.
3) Reynolda Village has two holiday shops featuring local arts and crafts. Associated Artists of Winston-Salem's Holiday "Art in the Village" shop has a variety of paintings, photographs and sculpture and will be open until 12/23. You can find it in the historic "Corn Crib" beside M. Christopher's and near the Village Tavern (the former location of Casanova's Fudge). The Winston-Salem Craft Guild has their holiday shop until 12/23 in the main barn (the former Ringmaster Jewelers) near the main entrance with a wide variety of hand-made crafts.
