'It's The Thought That Counts': A BAG holiday gift show
BRANDON — The Brandon Artists Guild kicks off the holiday season with affordable, gift-able art and craft pieces. The show, “It’s the Thought that Counts,” runs from Nov. 6 through Jan. 24. The public is invited to the free opening reception on Friday, Nov. 13, from 5-7 p.m. Social distancing rules will apply.
“We won’t let coronavirus dampen the holiday spirit of giving,” said Stacey Stanhope Dundon, a ceramic artists from Orwell and president of the BAG. “People can come to the Artists Guild and buy affordable, original pieces while avoiding crowds. They’re also helping the local economy and supporting working artists. It’s win-win.”
In addition to the BAG’s usual array of artworks, this all-member, all-media show features a holiday shop with a Mexican fiesta theme.
“The idea is to celebrate with bright, upbeat colors,” Stanhope-Dundon said, “tshe kind of color that lifts your spirits.”
The BAG, at 7 Center Street in Brandon, is open Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Hours may vary. Call 802 247-4956 or visit BrandonArtistsGuild.org for more info.
