The Garrett County Arts Council is currently celebrating 40 years by entering every customers that spends $40 or more in one of their two gallery locations will be entered into a drawing to win a gift basket of art.  The promotion runs forty days, from November 15th through December 24th.  Customers can also purchase a chance to win the basket without a sale.  In case you missed it, here is an article in Mountain Discoveries Magazine about the Arts Council.

If you're in or around Garrett County this evening, stop by the Eye for Art Gallery and the opening of "Synergy".  The show is a cooperative work featuring work by twenty-three area artists.  You'll find a wide variety of art including ceramics, paintings, photographs, and jewelry.  The opening reception is this evening from 5 - 7 pm.  If you can't make the opening, the show runs through February 25, 2015.  Angie Sincell always hangs a great show.  This gallery is worth a visit!

Our Town Theatre Christmas Market 

I'm pleased to be back at the Our Town Theatre's 7th Annual Christmas Market on December 7th at St. Peter's Catholic Church Parish Social Hall in Oakland, Maryland.  The event is part of Oakland's "A Great Small Town Christmas".  The event supports Our Town Theatre's Backstage, the scenery, costume and prop shop.   This is a great place to finish (or start) your holiday shopping with gifts from local artisans.  You'll also find great entertainment, food and I'm told Santa will be there as well.
