Christmas Market is almost open!

The annual Christmas Market is always a highlight for The Anton Art Center, and Christmas Market 2013 is going to be great!

Christmas Market 2013: Merry & Bright

The whole process is months in the making. In August the "Call for Artist" announcement went out to all potential  Christmas Market 2013 artists. The submissions started to come in. The art was chosen, and new work was judged.

The more physical work began on October 20. We dismantled The Gift Shop, and cleared The Art Center galleries down to bare walls. On October 25 we began to receive the artwork that would become the wondrous gifts that will be on display for the Market.

Since then dedicated volunteers have worked daily to set out and skillfully arrange thousands of pieces of art. Everything from jewelry, clothing, books, cards, wall art, ornaments, toys, art dolls, pottery, garden art, soap, carved wood, home decor, and of course Christmas items of all kinds, will be ready for your gift giving pleasure!

Christmas Market 2013 will open on November 14 with a members and sponsors preview party 5:30pm-8pm.
Christmas Market 2013 will be open to the public November 15 - December 22.
"Meet the Artists" reception Sunday November 17 1pm-3pm.

Shop early and often. This year's Christmas Market will not disappoint!
