This Sunday I will have not one but two holiday shows to cover. (Watch Sharon run.) Luckily, my friend Sandy Bush will sit at a table for me at the Owen County Arts Council show in the Owen County Courthouse during the annual Christmas parade. It’s the first Christmas show for the arts council, and I hope it is a smashing success. Last I heard there were 19 artists available to show their work.
I will be at a benefit holiday show to raise money for the Portland Museum in Louisville, KY, on Sunday, along with my good friend, Veronica, and her luscious breads and baked goodies. This is an annual event, raising much-needed funds for a wonderful neighborhood museum that highlights the history of Louisville and especially this area of the city. Neighborhood museums are almost a thing of the past, and this event is especially important. There is a large group of artists signed up to attend and lend their support, so it also should be a good time and good event.
Unfortunately, the rains are due to return to water-logged Kentucky on Sunday but who knows. We’re pretty hardy people here. It may turn out to be grand.
I’ll write a bit next week on how things turn out. Come on out, everyone. Local artists can use your support, and it will be a chance to purchase locally handmade gifts for the holidays. I’ll have my handmade Christmas soap there along with other special gift items. See you there…or somewhere!
