This week and weekend is bringing area holiday art exhibits and sales that several 2015 Artisan Road Trip artists will be participating in! Yes, lots of choices and loads of fun!
Each year the artists of this area get together for a Holiday Sale, and this year is no different - except - this year there are two events on the same weekend!
The first Holiday sale that you'll find A.R.T artists participating in is at Barb McGee's Gallery on Main Street in Peterson, Iowa and at Beth Cathcart's Rocking M Pottery, NW of Linn Grove, Iowa. Barb and Beth will be holding their Holiday sale for several artists this year! 2015 Artisans Road Trip artists at both Holiday Open Houses will include (among others) Tim Anderson, Beth Cathcart, Bruce Morrison, Barb McGee, Diane Noll and Marisa Sidles. These Holiday Open Houses will be held on Saturday December 5 from 9:00AM to 5P.M. and Sunday from Noon to 3PM.
Take some time and check out the artists and entertainment at the McGee Gallery and Rocking M Pottery Holiday Open House!
Another Holiday sale and exhibit that 2015 A.R.T. artists are participating in is a new gallery in Lake Park, Iowa! "December at Systolic Studio" will be an Art and Fine Antique sale and is being held in the former Methodist Church building in Lake Park.
