Wyly Wares returns

The Wyly Community Art Center presents its eighth annual Wyly Wares on Saturday. Wyly Wares is a popular bazaar featuring the work of established and emerging artists from the Roaring Fork Valley, with one-of-a-kind gifts and original crafts, all in one stop and all for a good cause – to raise funds for the community-based art center’s educational programs.”This year’s event showcases 33 local artists and offers a chance for our community to experience the amazing work of artists of all ages,” said Wyly director Deborah Jones.”The Wyly is about imagination, community and the importance of visual art for all ages and abilities. Wyly Wares emphasizes the beauty of handmade art and the joy of giving while supporting the magic of creative expression.”Since its inception, the center had shown work of student artists from the Early Childhood Center and the Aspen Community School. This year, the tradition continues with blooming narcissus in hand-painted pots, birdseed, holiday decorations and fresh evergreen wreaths.As always, entertainment and refreshments are part of the fun. The youth chorus from the community school continues its tradition of performing holiday songs at 1 p.m. In addition, the Wyly will also serve complimentary homemade refreshments.What: Wyly Wares When: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 11Where: The Wyly Community Art Center, 1199 Woody Creek Road, Woody CreekInformation: 923-1252, art@discovercompass.org, http://www.wylyarts.org
