getting ready for the Art Walk - give Hand Made!
Crazy Green Studios is gearing up to join others in our little Domino Lane Studios and in the neighborhood for the East West Asheville Holiday Art Walk. The event is one day only, but the holiday festivities will continue through December at my studio with Empty Bowl decorating days, discounts for those who bring canned food for Manna and year-end specials on studio membership and early orders for the new year!
For the Art Walk, I will be hosting fellow West Asheville artists Jennifer Hoolihan and Catherine Shane at Crazy Green Studios. Mimi Strang Design (my studio neighbor) will be hosting Leslie Fay and Simone Wilson/Pleasant Hugh Studio. And that's just us! There's also good eats right across the street, plus everything you need to fulfill your holiday shopping needs, yens and other creative desires. And when you shop the East West Asheville Holiday Art Walk, you're not only supporting hand made artisans, you're also supporting small business owners and for many your neighbors. The creativity and passion of these small businesses is evident when you walk in their doors (even when you walk BY their doors!), and the combination of great art, craft and locally-owned business is what makes Asheville, I think, a place people want to be. Here's your chance to support that and to get some great deals on pottery, tile, ornaments, sculpture, clothing, decorative fixtures, hand made books, holiday cards, prints, unique gifts, great food, personal beautification, home decor, good music...only the tip of the iceberg!
