Artists and artisans from near and far will have art, handmade wares, crafts, food, experiences and performances to delight the senses at the Artists Sunday on Sunday, Nov. 28 at Rose Center in Morristown.
Rose Center’s Local Artist Gallery and Gift Shoppe will be open Sunday, Nov. 28 between 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. to the general public. Artist Dan Gibson will be conducting a painting demonstration, allowing visitors the opportunity to not only buy art, but to see how some of it made.
Artists Sunday is dedicated to supporting local artists and recognizing the impact they have in enriching our lives, communities and the economy. Consumers are encouraged to shop with local artists, creators and makers and purchase creative, handcrafted items and artistic experiences for the holidays.
“One of the most personal gifts you can give someone you care about is the timeless gift of art,” said Rose Center’s Communications Manager and Program Coordinator Towanna Stone. “To be able to support the local economy by championing this region’s artists is icing on the cake.”
With shipping delays potentially creating empty shelves for holiday shoppers, this presents a wonderful opportunity to support local artists and artisans, as well as local businesses.
Artists Sunday follows Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, prior to Cyber Monday.
Supporters include thousands of individual artists, economic development agencies, commercial galleries and non-profit organizations across the country.
Participation in the event is free.
