The annual Dennos Museum Holiday Art Fair will be held Friday through Sunday, October 25–28, throughout the museum. Fine arts and crafts from 50 area artists, Christmas and Chanukah gifts, arts and crafts kits and more are just a few of the enticements for holiday shoppers. Hours will be Preview Opening, Thursday 5-8pm, Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 1–5 p.m.
The Holiday Art Fair has become well known for featuring fine arts and crafts by Michigan artists. Artists are encouraged to bring original art in all price ranges but especially prices below $30. This gives customers lots of choices for choosing original art as a holiday gift. The fair is well balanced with artists representing the mediums of blown glass, soft and metal sculptures, pottery, prints, printings, photographs, jewelry, fibers and much more.
There is no admission charge for the three days of the sale. For more information you may call the Museum Store at 995-1586. The Dennos Museum Center is located at Northwestern Michigan College, Traverse City.
Again this year there will be a benefit raffle to help raise funds to offset the cost of school visits. Many schools in the region have had budget cuts, which prohibit them from visiting the museum. Schools will be able to apply for funds to help offset the cost of buses or admission. Last year 900 students benefited from this fund. The holiday artists have donated a piece of art for the raffle. Tickets will be only sold on site for $2 each and 6/$5.
