Press release from the Madison County Arts Council:
For over a dozen years, the Madison County Arts Council has hosted a holiday sale in downtown Marshall. This year, everything looks different. “With COVID-19 still in the air, we needed a safe way to host this year’s sale,“ remarked Laura Boosinger, Executive Director. “We worked with a team of local artists to develop a strategy to safely present this event. This year’s market will be held on the first floor of the Arts Center and will still feature great local artists.”
To comply with COVID-19 protocols, anyone entering the building at 90 S. Main St. must wear a mask. No vendors will be present, and staff will complete purchases. The Holiday Sale features MCAC member artists. Ceramics, jewelry, fiber arts, painting, metal, woodwork, and photography are among the media represented in this show. This is a chance to shop in Marshall and find something truly unique. “The great thing about this format is we will be able to control the number of people in the building. And, the art will be available for purchase for nearly a month as opposed to an evening and a day. We think this is a great opportunity for artists who need to sell work and for our WNC community that wants to buy local,” says Boosinger. The sale hours are Mondays-Fridays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Saturdays, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. To learn more about the Holiday Sale, visit www.madisoncountyarts.com or call (828)-649-1301.
