The Lyndon House Arts Center’s Gallery Shop is expanding out into the Atrium for the Holidays. We’re Decking the Walls! Shop local and support Athens artisans this season. The theme for Deck the Walls this year, Innovations, will inspire all of the handcrafted jewelry, scarves, hats, mittens, pottery, glass, paintings, photography, soap, frames and folk art there is to choose from. Other offerings will include seasonal items such as cards, ornaments and wreaths.
The Visual Arts Guild of Athens, that manages the Gallery Shop, has invited the special guest artists of Long Road Studios to display work. Their pottery will be featured in one of the cases in the lower atrium gallery.
Visual Arts Guild of Athens member Par Ramey will have her work highlighted in the North Gallery and Resource Library.
