Holidaze Shopping @ artspace
December 3, 2017 @ 11:00 am - January 14, 2018 @ 6:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00am on Saturday, repeating indefinitely
Deck the Halls, Fa La La, Goody Gumdrops and Holly Jolly! Tis the Season for a holiday shopping spree and artspace is the place to rock around the Christmas tree. It’s SHOP LOCAL ART – and SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY, but HOLIDAZE is so big it’s going to take a full month (through December 30) and three entire floors to unwrap all there is to see and do.
“artspace PRESENTS” features one-of-a-kind gifts created by 26 Northwest Louisiana Artists selected to show and sell works on two floors in artspace. GIFTSPACE introduces new jewelry designs with special holiday “trunk” shows. The Holidaze BAZAAR is located downstairs in FUNSPACE will be filled with art, holiday gifts and specialty items from local Artists. And the family can enjoy “make and take” holiday crafts while snacking on sweet treats during this special Saturday HOLIDAZE opening event. Live Entertainment will kick off the “Songs and Sounds of the Season.” The Opening Event is free and open to all who dare to “SHOP LOCAL ART!”
You’ll find UNexpected and UNcommon gifts of fine art by juried local Artists in the “artspace PRESENTS” galleries. This is seasonal shopping to give you peace on earth rather than the hustle and bustle of wandering the mall. Megan Taylor Davis’ art features rural-life and oh-so-happy cows, owls, chickens, horses and gators painted on small canvasses and on cross shoulder purses. “My art is handmade with the intention of brightening someone’s day each time they look at it,” says Davis. “People of all ages enjoy my artwork, which is done in a style that is both realistic and impressionistic to capture the personality of a pet or the slyness of a chicken.”
Over a dozen local artists with very unique styles and genres will also be a part of HOLIDAZE including: Bruce Allen · Thomas Baird · Lisandra Di Liberto Brown · Marilyn Couch · Megan Davis Taylor · Linda Dickson · Connie Stephens-Eaton · Nancy Ferrari · Aly Fletcher · Cayla Flynn · Donna Chance Hall · Julie Glass · Dorothy Kristin Hanna · Talbot Hopkins · Hooshang Khorasani Karen La Beau · Thomas Little · Tracy McComic · Art Nerio · Larry Sanchez · Donna Strebeck · Leland Strebeck · Sherry Tamburo · Whitney Tates · Jennifer Vasquez · Lauri Wallace
