GRANT PARK — A dusting of frost. Cold, cold mornings. Black Friday. We survived them all. Now it’s time to turn our thoughts to creative gift giving. For a great selection of one-of-a-kind gifts, Cabbagetown Clay and Glass Works, a non-profit artists’ cooperative, invites you to its 12th Annual Holiday Sale. Friday night, December 6, is the gallery’s Holiday Opening Night, from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. You can enjoy refreshments and beverages while shopping and visiting with artist members. The gallery features fused glass , thrown and hand-built ceramic art, including Christmas ornaments, functional pieces, and sculptures.
As an added bonus on Opening Night, there will be a raffle of a special CCGW gnome, painted by Heather Colbaugh. You can purchase a raffle ticket or make a purchase over $10 from any artist in the studio. Another way to participate is to send a Paypal donation of $5 or more per ticket to email@example.com. The drawing of the winning ticket will be Friday night at 9 p.m. You do not have to be present to win.
The Cabbagetown Clay and Glass Works gallery, located at 588 Woodward Ave. SE, 30316, will continue to be open each weekend until Christmas from 9 am to 3 pm. An artist-run cooperative, CCGW was founded in 2002 and provides affordable studio space for ceramic and glass artists. It also presents classes for the general public, free workshops to local transitional housing programs for women and veterans, and showcases the work of artists in their gallery.
Both Candace McCollough and Lillian Bolster, Ormewood Park residents, are artist members of the Cabbagetown Clay and Glass Works.
