SHOP LOCAL, GIVE LOCAL
Located throughout historic Central School, Holiday Art Market will return December 9-11 with an array of fine and handmade items crafted by regional artists, encouraging the Lake Area community to “Shop Local, Give Local!”.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit this year’s spotlight organization, the Family & Youth Counseling Agency. Donations will help to purchase art supplies for the Shannon Cox Counseling Center’s Grief Initiative.
Vendors include watercolor artist Sue Zimmermann, Naquin’s Woodworks, photography by Heather Arsement and Marisa Getz, pottery by Jason Machulski, Debbie Wilfer, and Tracy LeMieux, handwoven baskets by Emma Hughes, handmade jewelry from Pam LeBleu and Josan Miller, and additional works by Morgan Allain, Peggy Borel, Daneisha Davis, Tony DuPuis, and many more.
Holiday Art Market will also feature performances, bakery treats, pet’s gifts, and a Kids Zone sponsored by The Art Factory, where children can craft their own Christmas cards and gift wrap, plus other fun arts-related activities.
Times for the festive event are as follows: Friday, December 9 (3-7pm), Saturday December 10 (10am-5pm), and Sunday December 11 (12-5pm).
Holiday Art Market is presented annually by the City of Lake Charles and the Arts Council of SWLA. For more details, visit www.artscouncilswla.org or contact the Arts Council at (337) 439-2787.
