The entire Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts will come alive to celebrate “Art for the Holidays” on Thursday, November 10th. Four different organizations call the Milton Rhodes Center home, and each of them will kick-off the holiday season in its own uniquely creative way. Special events begin at 4 PM and go until 8 that evening.
Bookmarks will spotlight literary and culinary arts with an appearance and demo by chef, author and TV personality Jennifer Brulé, author of Learn to Cook 25 Southern Classics 3 Ways. In addition, over a dozen authors, publishers and local vendors will fill Reynolds Place on the lower level of the Milton Rhodes Center, exhibiting and selling books, handmade book crafts, and book-related merchandise.
Across the hall from Bookmarks, Associated Artists of Winston-Salem will feature the work of its members in the Womble Carlyle Gallery. All of the work in this show, titled, The More the Merrier, will be for sale for under $200. All artwork purchased can be taken home immediately. This exhibition will be up from the beginning of November through the end of December. Calling itself “The Canvas of the Community,” Associated Artists is made up of nearly 300 local and regional member artists.
Sawtooth School for Visual Art invites shoppers to the second level of the building for an early holiday sale of crafts and fine art created by current and former Sawtooth instructors and advanced students. Everything in the Sawtooth Shop will be offered at a 10% discount, and visitors can get a “sneak peek” at a few artists whose work will be featured in “Deck the Halls” coming up in December. The Davis Gallery and the Corridor Gallery will both be open until 8 PM that evening as well.
Stop by Coffee Park ARTS for a cup of holiday cheer between shopping destinations. Located on the lower level, the shop is celebrating the start of its 3rd year in the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts. In addition to some of the best coffee in town, you’ll find hot chocolates, hot cider, and other specialty beverages to keep you warm and cozy while you get a jump on gift buying at “Art for the Holidays.”
