UNION — A showcase of the works of local artists at the Union County Arts Council Art Gallery is not only an opportunity for the public to view examples of local creativity in a variety of mediums but to also do some Christmas shopping.

The Local Artists Showcase is currently on display at the UCAC Art Gallery on Main Street and will remain on display until the end of December.

UCAC Director Amber Ivey said the showcase features the work of local artists including paintings, hand-painted shoes and handbags, handmade pens, handmade cards, long and short handmade scarves, and crystal and wooden handmade Christmas ornaments.

The paintings are hanging on the walls of the museum while the Christmas ornaments are displayed on the Art Gallery’s Christmas tree, the scarves on a rack, and the rest of the items on tables lining the walls.

Ivey said that all the items on display are for sale, including two paintings — “All Things” and “Joyful” — the proceeds from the sale of which will go to benefit the Children’s Advocacy Center. The proceeds from the sale of the rest of the items on diaplay will be shared by the artists and the UCAC.

Ugly Christmas Sweater

The UCAC is also sponsoring an “Ugly Christmas Sweater” contest for children in kindergarten through the 6th grade.

Ivey said the contest involves participating children designing their very own Ugly Christmas Sweater using a sweater template provided by the UCAC though additional material may be used. She stressed that all the work must be done by the child participating in the contest, not by their parents.

Submissions must be turned in by Monday, Nov. 30 and the name of the parent(s) and child, phone number, and child’s age must be on the back of the sweater.

The winner will be selected on Tuesday, Dec. 1 by the UCAC Painting with Coffee Group and will receive a free Mini Monet Class in December.

The UCAC Arts Gallery is located at 116 E. Main St., Union, and is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

It is closed today and will remain closed through the rest of the week for Thanksgiving but will reopen Monday at its regular time.
