Celebrate with Art in Brandon

“Soft Toys” by Judith Reilly.

Friday, Nov. 8 at 5 p.m. —BRANDON—Join the Brandon Artists Guild in celebrating with art this holiday season. All are welcome to join the opening celebration on Nov. 8 from 5-7 p.m. and pick up an affordable one-of-a-kind arts and crafts piece from the gallery.

“Art makes a great gift, but buying art for someone else can be a little intimidating,” Wenda Curtis, jewelry designer and Guild board member, admits. “So this year we’re focusing on affordable, approachable – and fun – pieces. The kind of work that makes people smile.”
“For Celebrate with Art we’ve invited Guild artists to work outside the media that they’re used to,” Curtis explained. “A potter might try painting. Or a jeweler might try sculpture. It’ll be exciting to see what everyone comes up with.”

In addition to the Celebrate with Art show, the BAG also welcomes three new member-artists. Catherine Palmer works in colored pencils; Michael DiMeola is a photographer; and Winslow Colwell combines photography with kite forms. The BAG debut of these artists’ work coincides with the opening of the holiday show.

The show continues through Jan. 28 at the Guild Gallery, 7 Center Street, Brandon. For more information call 802-247-5946.
