The opening reception for the Blacksburg Regional Art Association Holiday Market was great fun! Lots of members volunteered to help setup, be a vendor, bring reception goodies and wine, handle sales, play hostess, etc., making the event a terrific success. special thanks to Carole Davis, the BRAA chair for our presence in the CAIO and new head of this holiday market. Visitors from the crowd on the streets added the festive energy and endorsed our art by opening their wallets. It was a great night!
The market is located in the Community Arts Information Office at 149 College Avenue in Blacksburg, between Gillie's restaurant and The Lyric Theater. A huge thank you goes to Susan Mattingly and Laureen Blakemore for letting us take over their turf and helping us in too many ways to mention. More gratitude goes to Steve Miller and Jen Huffman of Mish Mish art supply for loaning us the wonderful card rack.
The market is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. To 5 p.m., through Jan 3, 2018, showcasing the work of 21 member artists.
