Bookmarks is teaming up again with Associated Artists and Sawtooth School for Visual Art with several events on Friday, December 4 to help with your holiday shopping! All events will be held inside the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts at 251 North Spruce Street in Winston-Salem.
The Bookmarks Holiday Bazaar will feature local vendors and artists selling book crafts and books from 4 to 8 p.m. This will include signed first editions, handmade crafts including cards, journals, and artwork as well as books for every person on your list from preschool aged to grandparents!
Charlie Lovett, New York Times bestselling author, will be giving two short talks about his new book The Further Adventures of Ebenezer Scrooge. He’ll speak at 5:30 and 7 p.m. in the Hanes Conference Room. Following his presentation, the first public screening of a short film about Bookmarks, created by NC School of the Arts students, Peter Brown and Eric Gesualdo, will be shared.
A reception for “The More the Merrier,” Associated Artists’ annual holiday art exhibition, will take place beginning at 5 p.m. This show transforms the Womble Carlyle Gallery into a wonderful art filled menagerie of affordable artwork, prime for the holiday shopping season. Unlike traditional exhibits, art can be bought and taken home by patrons immediately. All artwork is priced $50, $100 or $150.
“Deck the Halls” is Sawtooth School for Visual Art’s largest fundraising event. Beautifully displayed in their gallery and gift shop setting, Deck the Halls features a unique variety of work from Sawtooth faculty, students, and regional artists. This year, Deck the Halls will be free and open to the public beginning December 4 and running through December 21. Hours of operation on December 4 are 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
In addition, Spring Theatre presents the second Annual Winter Showcase Spectacular at 7 p.m. in Mountcastle Forum, on the second floor of the Rhodes Center. The event will feature performances by Spring GLEE, Finale, Coda & Guest Performers, and The Giving Arts Dance Project. Tickets: 336-283-8688.
