Sculpture, photography, pottery, handmade books, glass art, prints, paintings, jewelry and so much more are all to be found at the Charlotte Art Collective’s Holiday Show & Sale this Saturday November 10 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. With as many as 25 artists in attendance, including well known Sukey Pratt, Celena Burnett, Richard Siegel and Celia Flock, and such a wide variety of art and craft, you are sure to find an amazing piece for your home or someone on your Christmas list.
The Charlotte Art Collective (CAC) began roughly nine years ago by two local artists, Celia Flock and Jill Shuford, in an effort to form a venue for professional and emerging artists while also creating a community support system. Flock commented that “the CAC has been a great adventure for me personally. New friendships have been formed and learning to be a cohesive group of artists supporting each other has been an asset.”
Having grown considerably over the years, the CAC has moved from the Ivy Room at the Mint Museum Randolph, where they held the first show to the Pavilion at Freedom Park, and now the CAC utilizes the Avondale Presbyterian Church Fellowship hall at the edge of Dilworth and Myers Park. There is no admission charge for the Holiday Show & Sale, and there is ample parking at the Fellowship Hall.
The CAC not only supports young and emerging artists, but it also gives back to the Charlotte community by contributing to Dilworth Cares, which is an outreach effort of the Dilworth Community Development Association. Charlotte Art Collective members donate work to be featured in a “Basketful of ART” that is raffled off during the show and then the proceeds will benefit Dilworth Cares.
Do not miss this wonderful opportunity to experience fine art and craft made by local Charlotte artists. Enter the “Basketful of ART” raffle for a chance to win amazing art and support the Dilworth community.
