Rose Center to host Artists Sunday, Nov. 29

Rose Center for the Arts has joined the Artists Sunday Alliance, and will promote local artisans and craftspeople on Artists Sunday, which is celebrated on November 29, the Sunday after Thanksgiving.

The Rose Center gift shop will also be open that day, full of artwork and crafts by local artists.

Artist Sunday, falling between Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, is a day dedicated to encouraging consumers to shop with artists and give something special, unique, and hand-crafted this holiday season. Rose Center appreciates the culture artists create and the impact they have on our local community, while adding expression and beauty to our lives.

Artists from across the country are participating in Artists Sunday, representing a full range of art, hand-crafted items, and performances. The diversity of artisans allows consumers to ‘shop art’ this Artists Sunday and give something personal and meaningful this holiday season.

Rose Center has joined Artists Sunday to help promote artists in the Lakeway Area, and encourages any artist to take part. With many festivals, exhibits, and craft shows being cancelled or postponed this year, it is a great opportunity for local artists to showcase their craft, and be exposed to an online audience with the intent of purchasing artwork this holiday season. Rose Center wants to help its artists however it can help drive their artistic careers.

To help support this effort, Rose Center’s gift shop will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 28; 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 29; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday, Nov. 30; and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 2.

Artists Sunday is the nationwide movement dedicated to supporting artists and recognizing the impact they have in enriching our lives, communities, and the economy. The powerful new effort is designed to make the Sunday after Thanksgiving the most profitable day of the year for artists. Consumers are encouraged to shop with artists and purchase creative, handcrafted gifts for the holidays. Artists Sunday follows Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, prior to Cyber Monday.

Supporters include individual artists, economic development agencies and non-profit organizations across the country.
