We will begin the evening with the opportunity to explore the different vendors of the pop-up holiday market. It’s always so hard to find something as special as your special someone, but our market may just be the place to find what you are looking for. Each vendor crafts of one of a kind creations and every one has its own special element that makes it unique. After the marketplace, we will begin our storytelling gallery tour. During the tour, our featured artists will explain the background behind the process and their artwork. We will end the evening with a bit of open networking and touring of the art. Light refreshments will be provided throughout the evening. So please join us for our Wintery gallery opening reception and Winter Marketplace. Come Shop, Sip & SELLabrate!
