"Art Takes a Bough" Community Art Project
For the seventh consecutive year, Geauga Council for Arts & Culture will showcase regional artists in its "Art Takes a Bough" Community Art Project featuring handmade holiday ornaments.
These beautiful miniature pieces of artwork may be admired and bids may be placed to purchase them at The West Woods Nature Centernow through Thursday, December 12, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. They will also be on display and auctioned off during an Open House & Reception on December 12 from 6 to 9 p.m.
Guests at the reception will have the opportunity to place silent bids on the artwork and enjoy holiday refreshments and music, as well as vote for "People's Choice" ornament winners. Then, at 7 p.m., Bill Hixson, an accomplished floral designer who has helped decorate The White House for the holidays for almost 30 years, will talk about legends and lore surrounding popular, iconic holiday figures, as well as flora and fauna of the season. His ornaments will be available for sale and signing at the event, as well.
Proceeds from the ornament auction/sale benefit participating artists, Geauga Park District and Geauga Council for Arts & Culture.
