Hopkinsville Art Guild & Gallery recently held an open house to kick off the 2018 Christmas Bazaar, its first in many years, featuring great gifts made by local artists.
Jeannie White is the current president of the gallery and Henrietta Kemp is president of the Art Guild. The two organizations worked together to present this year's Christmas Bazaar Reception and Open House.
“We feature a variety of artists, each with his own table,” White said. “We also grouped all of each artist's work together on the walls around the gallery."
“We are a co-op,” White said. “We take turns working the gallery once a month. Every quarter we change out the art work and present new items. We always have a great selection of jewelry, paintings, wood carving, photography and other gift items."
Henrietta Kemp talked about the role of her organization. “Hopkinsville Art Guild works hand in hand with the gallery,” Kemp said. “We are a non-profit that supports the arts in the community, mainly visual arts. We appreciate all of the artists who have set up their own tables. They have done a lot of work, decorating, and creating a Christmas theme. They have created some amazing items that will make great Christmas gifts.”
Christmas Bazaar will be on display through December 25. The Gallery is located at 108 E. 6th Street in downtown Hopkinsville. For information, call (270) 962-7307 or find them on Facebook at Hopkinsville Art Guild & Gallery.
