LACA's ‘Art of Giving’ Holiday Artist Market opens Friday, Nov. 25
The Ludington Area Center for the Arts (LACA) will host its annual ‘Art of Giving’ Holiday Artist Market this holiday season in the art center’s main gallery.
The ‘Art of Giving’ Holiday Artist Market allows area artists an opportunity to display their artwork to community members looking for unique, locally made gifts. The holiday artist market will be open during LACA business hours (Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Wednesdays 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) beginning Friday, Nov. 25 through Friday, Dec. 16.
The holiday artist market features artwork from: Steve Begnoche, Marie Bennett, Dan Blackstone, Mary Case, Ruthie Eilers, Rachel Finberg, Eli Gezequel, Brian Kainulainen, Anne Kivela, the Knittin @ the Mitten group, Marie LaPres, Rebecca Mott, Karen Nielsen, Ellen Niemann, Denise Ottinger, Dave Preston, Sheila Preston, Marion Riedl, Joan Riise, Linda Sandow and Julie Snyder.
Throughout the holiday shopping season LACA plans to educate our community about the advantages of purchasing locally made art. Buying and giving art shows thoughtfulness. It shows you cared enough to not buy the same mass-produced stuff anyone can buy. Giving art demonstrates real meaningful support for the arts.
If you think the arts are important to human culture, then put your money where your mouth is and buy art from local artists. Buying art from local artists also helps their small business and your local economy thrive.
