The 28th Annual Members Show and Art Sale will be on exhibit at the Arts Depot in Abingdon, VA through December 20th.
Members of the Depot Artists Association will display more than 100 pieces of original works throughout three galleries. This is an excellent opportunity to support local artists and to purchase beautiful, one-of-a-kind gifts or gift certificates for the holidays.
The Arts Depot’s Holiday Open House will be held from 6-8 pm on Thursday, December 7th. The evening event is in coordination with Abingdon’s “First Thursday Gallery Hop.” Be our guest and enjoy refreshments, a glass of wine served to those over 21 and the sounds of the season performed by pianist, David Collins.
On Saturday, December 9th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. complimentary photos with Santa will be offered at the Depot in partnership with our neighbors, Highlands Union Bank. Bring the whole family and have a free photo taken with Santa on his sleigh! Mrs. Claus will serve sweet treats and drinks. Christmas crafts and coloring stations will be set up for kids to enjoy.
On Saturday December 16th at 1 pm, the Abingdon-based band, Stravàigin, (meaning wanderer) will be in concert. Straváigin offers a wandering repertoire of traditional Irish and Scottish folk music combined with a variety of stirring marches, jigs, reels and moving slow airs on the Great Highland Bagpipe, shuttle pipes, and Scottish small pipes. The roots of Appalachian music run deep in the rhythms and harmonies of the Scots-Irish who brought their music to America. Concert goers will enjoy traditional treats and refreshments.
The Arts Depot is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and by appointment. All events are free and everyone is welcome.
