ARTCENTRAL’S HOLIDAY BOUTIQUE
Still riding on the high of celebrating our Maple Leaf Festival with family and friends, our hearts are turning to holiday traditions just ahead.
While leaves continue to brighten then twirl down to carpet the days before us, our weeks for making preparations are quickly moving by. Menus are already being planned for Thanksgiving gatherings, as first boxes of yule decorations are fetched from attics and basements. By now, many among us are beginning our gift shopping.
Featured again this year, in addition to artCentral artist creations, are artCentral’s signature potted and bowed scarlet amaryllis, planted to bloom at the peak of the holiday festivities. Each modestly priced amaryllis in this limited edition is presented in a sparkling gold container. Perfect for your own home, these beauties make perfect gifts for friends, family and business associates, as well. Reserve several and prepay by calling (417) 358-4404 in advance of the Boutique.
New this year is artCentral’s Holiday Boutique Silent Auction featuring 4x4 canvases created and donated by artCentral artists. Visit the Auction early to select your favorites and make your initial bids. The Silent Auction will continue until 3:30 pm on Saturday, December 3rd. Last minute bids may be phoned in to (417) 358-4404. All fund-raising proceeds will go toward artCentral’s continuing work on behalf of art and artists.
December 1, Thursday, 5-8 pm, is the Holiday Boutique Preview, Silent Auction launch and your first shopping opportunity.
December 2, Friday afternoon and evening, 3-8 pm, your shopping and Silent Auction bidding times continue.
December 3, Saturday, 9 am - 4 pm, is morning and afternoon shopping with the Silent Auction bidding concluding at 3:30 pm.
