North Central Florida artists showcase their work in the second annual Gathering of the Artists Holiday Show -Both the Thomas Center and The Doris are the settings for the December 8 Gainesville event-
(Gainesville, Fla. – Nov. 2012) The second annual Gathering of the Artists Holiday Show is a unique collaboration of award-winning individuals featuring their best achievements in ceramics, painting, sculpture, quilting, jewelry, hand painted silks and wood furniture. The non-profit public event, coordinated by Sandra Matasick, will be on Saturday, December 8 from 1 to 9 p.m. at The Thomas Center, 302 NE 6th Avenue, and the Doris Bardon Community Cultural Center (The Doris) at 716 N. Main St.
In its second year, Gathering of the Artists has expanded to a second cultural venue to allow more local artists to showcase their work. Many of these artists are represented in local and national galleries as well as in art festivals including the acclaimed Smithsonian Craft Show. According to Matasick, “our goal is to provide an upscale festive holiday atmosphere for artists and customers to interact and share their work. The second annual event is better and bigger than the inaugural event in 2011. It is one not to miss.”
