CALL FOR ARTISTS:
Alamance Artisans Guild announces the evolution of our successful Alamance Studio Tour to honor the power of nature (hurricanes in October) by planning an all-guild indoor event! The Steering Committee has been busy planning our new October event, the Alamance Artisans Annual Art Extravaganza, which will take place at the Vailtree Event & Conference Center in Haw River.
Saturday, October 14 (10 am–5 pm), and Sunday, October 15 (noon–5 pm), with a half-day setup on Friday, October 13
Vailtree Event & Conference Center
1567 Bakatsias Lane
Haw River, NC 27258
The Vailtree Event Center is a fantastic venue offering over 12,000 square feet of multiple connecting rooms. It is conveniently located directly off I-85/I-40, exit ramp #150, between Mebane and Graham. Bakatsias Lane is directly opposite the parking lot of Alamance Community College at the end of the service road. The center is wheelchair accessible with ample parking and restroom facilities. A covered portico entrance ensures the safety of our artwork and our guests’ comfort. The Vailtree has a kitchen, plasma screens, a sound system, and an elevated stage where we may have art demonstrations. Also arrangements have been made for security guards to be present.
The Steering Committee is organizing a Food Committee which will arrange to serve light snacks, and wine to our visitors. It is designing a special event logo, promotional signage, and more. This is sure to be an event you won’t want to miss!
