More Than 40 Artists Participate in 2011 Holiday Sales House at Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County | Arts & Culture
Camden, SC--November 17, 2011--Are you looking for an original, one of a kind gift for that special person on your list? Well, look no further. You’re sure to find it at the Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County’s (FAC) annual Holiday Sales Show. Set in the Center’s historic Douglas-Reed House (ca. 1812), the show will feature a selection of fine, handcrafted works of art in clay, glass, fiber and wood, along with many other hand-crafted items all made in the USA. This year, more than 40 local and regional artists will participate in this annual shopping extravaganza. The 2011 Holiday Sales Show is sponsored by First Community Bank.
The Holiday Sales Show begins with a special “sneak preview” night on Friday, December 2 from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. prior to the Chamber Choir of Kershaw County's Christmas Concert and will include spiced cider and other holiday goodies. The Holiday Sales Show continues daily through December 14. Regular shopping hours are 10:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 1:30 to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday.
Debra Gregory, a ceramic artist and teacher at the FAC, secured the artists and will manage the show. "This is my third year coordinating artists for the Holiday House and I thoroughly enjoy it. It is such a pleasure to seek out new artists (and the old!) and get an education about how they create their work," she says.
Shoppers can expect to fine some one-of-a-kind treasures including pottery, jewelry, baskets, hand-made toys, scarves, crotched afghans, stained, hand-blown and hand-painted glass, unusual metal items and frames, wooden items such as oyster knives, cutting boards, and bird houses, ornaments, and photographic notecards. Plus, you will also find edible treats like Mother Shucker’s Original Cocktail Sauce, Happy Memories Fudge, Sally's Famous Dips, tea and tea infusers, jams and jellies, and more!
