Portage Park District Foundation Holiday Arts & Crafts Sale

The Portage Park District Foundation is pleased to present an arts and crafts sale featuring the work of 34 artists.  The “Nature’s Store Holiday Arts & Crafts Sale” will be held December 7 and 8, 3-8 p.m., at the Downtown Gallery located at 141 East Main Street, Kent.

A reception will be held both evenings from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. with refreshments available.

All the pieces in the juried show have been inspired by nature and include acrylics, watercolors, photography, sculpture, jewelry, cards and more.

“We are very happy with the work the artists submitted for our second annual show.  The pieces are beautiful and capture the beauty and power of nature,” said Sally Kandel, president of the Portage Park District Foundation.  “They are simply inspiring.”

Through donations of a portion of the artists’ sales, the show will raise money for the Portage Park District Foundation, which supports the Portage Park District.

“This is a great opportunity to do some holiday shopping.  The majority of our artists are local and are sharing their talents for the benefit of the parks,” said Beth Buchanan, vice president of the Portage Park District Foundation Board.

The Kent State School of Art provided help and support for this program.
