Dan River Art Market & Gallery Holiday Open House

On December 6, from 10-5 the Dan River Art Market & Gallery opens its doors to the public to share art, live music, light refreshment and a make-and-take holiday ornament.

The annual Holiday Open House, presented by the Rockingham County Arts Council, celebrates the bounty from the creative local artists in Rockingham County. Each year the Holiday Season presents the perfect opportunity to share a hand-made gift from a local artist. Supporting the local creative economy is a special part of the giving community that is unique to Rockingham County.

“Artists throughout the county are sharing their talents in so many ways and the holiday gift-giving season is a great way to show community support by choosing to #ShopLocal and #BuyRockinghamArt. A unique gift of pottery, a handmade scarf, painted picture, handcrafted jewelry, book by a local author and a CD of music by a local singer/songwriter is a unique gift that will be appreciated for its’ beauty and support! Our artists exhibit artwork and crafts at many of our #SmallBusinesses and gift shops. The Dan River Art Market is a central location with a sampling of our own arts community with a celebratory Holiday Open House.”

Artists are welcome to bring artwork, crafts, books, CD’s and other items that our arts community can purchase for holiday gift-giving to the Art Market by December 4. Many holiday shoppers are searching for simple gifts that are festive and affordable.

The Holiday Open House celebration will feature live music from ”Chords and Strings” dulcimer group and possibly more live music, along with light refreshments and make-and-take holiday ornaments. Artists will be on hand to demonstrate and can take commissioned orders.

The Dan River Art Market & Gallery
will be open Thursdays from 11-4, Fridays 11-2 through December 19 and Saturday, December 6 from 10-5 and December 12 from 11-2.   It is located at 1122 NC HWY 65 in Wentworth, NC.

This Holiday Season, #ShopLocal and #BuyRockinghamArt !
