Quit whining and start doing!
Instead of bemoaning the fact that there wasn’t anywhere locally where authors and artists could showcase and sell their creations, my husband and I decided to brainstorm. Here’s what we came up with and put into motion. Hoping it becomes an annual event.
ARTISTS & AUTHORS on the square – A POP-UP HOLIDAY SHOP!
This is an opportunity you won’t want to miss!
A new attraction has been added to your shopping choices during the Pella Tour of Homes & Tea on December 3, 4, and 5. Artists & Authors on the square showcases the area’s creative talents and offers them up for sale from the artists and authors themselves.
You’ll find Artists & Authors Pop-Up Shop
at 836 Main St. on the corner
of Washington and Main Streets in Pella
Thursday from 1:00-8:00 p.m.
Friday from 10:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.
Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Not only will you get a close-up look at all the art, music, and books, but creative folks will take turns giving presentations at the top of every hour—demonstrating a technique, telling the story behind a piece of work, reading from their books, or singing songs from their CDs. Watch for a schedule coming soon. Friday early evening is Flash Mob time, and there may be more surprises as well.
We will be posting previews of the 11+ artists and 7 authors and their works daily on this site until the event. You will also find us on:
www.PellaNow.com and the free mobile app Pella Now.
