Lights… lights and….. well…. more lights has been the ongoing theme for the 30+ years the Dunedin Fine Art Center has been mounting its festive holiday show and sale.
DFAC reconfigures itself November 3rd, 2018 in its holiday finest… albeit with a decidedly artistic flair. The centerpiece is undoubtedly the invitational exhibition, this year appropriately entitled Starry, Starry Delights. On a yearly basis, DFAC curators look to put together the best art, with a gift-giving perspective in mind. The result is a collection of works from around the region that any of your friends or relatives would be DELIGHTED to find under their tree. Selected artists include: DFAC Faculty members and celebrated regional artists including: Paula Brett. Jenny Carey, Kimberli Cummings, Melissa Fair, Gail Gamble, Mikell Herrick, Candace Knapp, Wendy McCarthy, Reiko Miyagi of Studio Tabula Rasa, Trish Sande, Sam Scott, Ellen Vontillius + many more!
Add to that some exceptionally decorated themed trees and a selection of hard-to-find gifts with something for just about everyone, and you begin to get the idea of what this much-anticipated holiday tradition is all about.
Tradition has it, for Holiday Show and Sale exhibit only, that purchases can go home with you. See a painting you want… take it off the wall. Like those hand-made ornaments on that tree, grab them and take them to a cashier! DFAC’s holiday exhibit traditionally opens the same week as Art Harvest, the long-standing art fair hosted adjacent to the Dunedin Fine Art Center by the Junior League of Dunedin/Clearwater. The sheer numbers involved make for a joyous yearly kick-off of the holiday season.
Recently, DFAC has been offering extended holiday hours. This year is no different, with the center being open for a full day on Saturdays from 10 am to 5 pm. DFAC’s Palm Cafe’ will ALSO be open Saturdays for the holiday season, so plan on staying for lunch! There will be special events and other offerings, so check the DFAC website at www.dfac.org for complete details. Starry, Starry Delights – 32nd Annual Holiday show + Sale continues through December 23rd.
