Arts center issues call for artists for two events coming to area
We invite all arts and crafts artists in the area to participate in “Gifts,” a holiday exhibit at the Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts. Remember Winterfest? Well this is Winterfest 2.0, an updated version of our two-day crafts fair and miniature art exhibit. We are setting up the gallery like a lovely art exhibit featuring crafts and fine art on pedestals and the walls. This exhibit and sale focuses on handmade jewelry, art cards, handmade textile arts, pottery, frames, candles, miniatures, other fine artwork, glassware and many other exquisite items yet to be discovered. “Gifts” in a gallery atmosphere: It goes with our theme of living artfully. Application deadline is Friday, Nov. 26. From Dec. 3-22 shoppers will find a one-of-a-kind gifts for someone special from a wide array of artisans and craftspeople.
