Join Brushwood Center for their 3rd Annual Nature-Inspired Holiday Art Market this December 7 & 8. Enjoy some hot cocoa and listen to carols in our welcoming historic home while you shop for unique art, handmade gifts, cards and prints from over 50 local artists and makers. Throughout the Market, view our annual exhibition “Enriching Life,” which showcases the work of our Botanical Art Academy run by internationally known artist, Heeyoung Kim. Be sure to check the schedule for special events including Artist Demos, a Children’s Music and Story Hour, the BASE UpCycling Championship on Saturday, and learn about healthy holiday recipes at our Mindful Merriment: A Guide to Holiday Eating program on Sunday.
On the afternoon of December 7th we will be celebrating the new Brushwood Art Supply Exchange (BASE) with a live art competition! Watch two artists battle to see which one can make the best finished piece based on the surprise theme before the clock runs out. Both will have access to all the materials and tools in BASE, and three and a half hours to work while the Art Market crowd looks on.
Join us on Sunday, December 8th to enjoy new holiday recipes and find out why your body will love them! Learn from Dr. Disha Narang, Endocrinologist, and Monica Joyce, Dietitian, about the health benefits of this wholesome holiday fare, sample each recipe with professional Chef Catherine O’Meara, and enjoy the taste to the fullest with mindfulness expert Gail Sturm. This program is a ticketed event and requires advanced registration (there is no fee or registration needed for the Art Market or other Market weekend events).
