News in Brief: Davis Art Center to host Holiday Sale

From Friday to Dec. 2, the Davis Art Center, located at 1919 F St., will hold its 22nd annual Holiday Sale.
According to a press release, this year the center will have even more vendors and more holiday activities. Over 70 vendors will be present, selling handmade items spanning from jewelry to artwork. Prices range from $2 to $200.
The sale is considered the largest fundraiser for the Davis Art Center, every vendor donates 15 percent of their profits back to the center.
Some local organizations and businesses will be collaborating with the center. Davis Pedicab will transport people from the Veterans Memorial Center parking lot to and from the Davis Art Center free of charge. Additionally, Stonesoup Catering will provide their gourmet, locally-sourced soup.
An activity for three to 12-year-old children, called the Children’s Secret Store, will allow them to do their own shopping for their parents and loved ones, while being accompanied by a volunteer. In addition, a table initiated last year called the Green Table encourages children to shop locally and sustainably. The table will feature items made with recycled materials.
Another activity will be the Wall of Art silent auction. Funds raised from this activity will go toward the Gerald Wooliever Scholarship Fund, which gives scholarships to high school art students. There will also be a Pottery Painting Room and Crafting Corner for kids to make their own gifts.

At noon on Dec. 1, there may also be a concert featuring the Davis Art Center’s music and dance ensembles, if the weather permits.

The sale will run from noon to 7 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m on Sunday.
