Alamance Artisans

Dear Friends of Alamance Artisans,

After much thought, the AAG Board and the Extravaganza Steering Committee are announcing the cancellation of this year's Extravaganza which was scheduled for October.

In making this decision, we have considered many factors:
Most importantly, the health issues involving the Coronavirus.
The late start, especially in dealing with publicity concerns.
Most participants and customers will probably not feel safe being in crowds for some time.
Many people have been unemployed for months, and therefore will not be able to spend money buying art.

It is with sadness that we make this decision, but we feel it is in everyone’s best interest at this time. The well being of the hundreds of Extravaganza visitors is precious to us. You all have supported us for many years and for that we are truly grateful. Vailtree has moved our 2020 deposit ahead to next year and confirmed the dates for the Extravaganza to be held on October 23rd and 24th of 2021!

Looking into the future, we have secured our Spring 2021 exhibit at the Center for Creative Leadership.
Also, there are some openings for artists to exhibit at the Paramount and Mebane Arts Center during 2021. If you are interested, please contact our AAG Board Secretary, Pat Towery, at [email protected]

Alamance Arts has offered to feature an exhibition of Alamance Artisans work at the Captain White House during February and March of 2022.

Depending on the status of our community, we are exploring the possibility of having a different, simpler all-guild show for this fall/winter. Please watch this space for updates, as well as updates for sales individual artists will be having.

Please stay safe and healthy... and KEEP enjoying art in all it’s forms.

Jan Holloman, President, Alamance Artisans Guild

Do you take photos of animals? Be ready to talk about your art and why you chose the particular animal theme: is it based on your own beloved pet? Or maybe you grew up on a farm and paint to remember the scenes. Well enjoy a fun time of discussion about animals in art and get to know each other a little better.
