Sugar & Spice Weekend sounds fun

posted in Art, City Life, Local Groups |

I’m going to avoid the mall traffic this Saturday and look for unique gifts by going downtown to the Holiday Market Place at the Brush Art Gallery and Studios, 256 Market Street (behind the National Park Visitor Center). Special hours for the Sugar & Spice Weekend are 11-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and shoppers will be able to sample free sweets as part of the “Cookie Competition,” which includes voting for the winning cookie along with getting recipes and warm refreshments (another reason not to sit in traffic on Daniel Webster Highway). Visiting the gallery is always a pleasant, stress-free experience and a great way to find special gifts for those hard-to-buy-for folks. But watch out, if you’re anything like me, you won’t be able to resist picking up a little something for yourself too.

    Always a pleasant experience, shopping at the Brush has become a Christmas tradition for me. I love the colors and variety of the work, seeing the artists and others from the community, and of course, tasting the cookies was fun too. I ended up buying two exquisite hand-woven scarves by Cindy Hughes, two stained glass pieces by Donna Murray (one a cobalt-blue and yellow clock), as well as a flattened blue-glass cheese tray and knife, and earrings by Lolita Demers.
