The local arts scene was hopping this past weekend in Water Valley. Oxford is going to follow with several upcoming art offerings in the next couple of weeks.
First on the list are this week’s events including the Annual YAC Holiday Ornament Auction which will be held at the Powerhouse on Thursday, Dec. 6th from 7-9pm. There will be around a hundred ornaments made by Oxford artists ready for bidding. The celebration will feature tastings from local restaurants and wine and cocktail samples as well. The event is free for all YAC members, and you can still renew your membership today in order to attend the party by calling 236-6429. There will be a raffle for a piece by local artist, Jere Allen, and those tickets are 25.00 each, but hurry as there are only 200 of those tickets available. You can also get an ornament even if you cannot make the party by going to oxfordarts.com, and there is more information at www.facebook.com/ornamentauction.
Next is the Holiday Arts Market that will be held at the Powerhouse Dec. 13-15th. The Holiday Arts Market is co-sponsored by the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council and the Oxford Artists’ Guild, and will feature booths offering artworks and hand crafted gifts for the holidays. The Holiday Arts Market will coincide with Theatre Oxford’s holiday play.
