Rail Walk studios & Gallery to Host Festival of Gifts

Marietta Smith, Rail Walk Studios & Gallery

Fifteen fine arts and craftspeople have accepted an invitation to have their work in the “Festival of Gifts: Invitational Exhibit and Sale of Fine Arts and Crafts.” The exhibit will be held at Rail Walk Studios& Gallery 409 N. Lee St. from No. 6 through 29. The gallery is open to the public Thursdays – Saturdays 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. A “Meet the Artists” reception will be held Saturday, Nov. 8 from 2 to 4 p.m. Many of the participating artists will be on hand to meet the public, share light refreshments and discuss their art and techniques during the reception.

The mission of this event is to showcase the fine quality of art being produced locally and regionally and to provide an opportunity for the public to purchase local work during the gift-giving season.

Rail Walk Studios & Gallery member artists have been on the lookout throughout the year for artists to invite based on the quality of their work and media which will create a well-rounded and pleasing event. Invited artists have been asked to include work which is of appropriate scale and price-range for gift-giving. Rail Walk Studio artists will also have small works of their own available for purchase.

Media in the exhibit will include: basketry, stained glass, fused glass, pottery, metal art, outdoor art, weaving, gourds, hand-sewn items, cards, jewelry, wood and holiday decorative pieces along with other surprises.

Support for the Festival of Gifts has been provided by the Rowan Arts Council and Rowan Investment Company.
