Tours give art enthusiasts a look behind the scenes

When art lovers browse through art galleries, they delight in seeing the finished product of the artist. Rarely, however, are they able to catch a glimpse of where the masterpiece started.

Recently, several local artists of varying mediums opened the doors to their studios and invited the public in to share their work in the place where it was created. (December 10, 2010, Page 1B)

Weekend offers lots of arts, crafts sales

Last weekend included Christmas Open House on the Oxford Square and Black Friday shopping everywhere, while “Cyber Monday” was earlier this week. From the looks of events scheduled for this weekend, you might call it “arts and crafts weekend” around the Lafayette-Oxford-University community. Editor Don Whitten mentions some of the places to visit this weekend and talks about the importance of shopping locally. (December 3, 2010, Page 4A)

Give & receive

The crowds come early to The Pantry’s Empty Bowls fundraiser, one of the most popular annual events in the community. Potter Ron Dale, who brought the concept to The Pantry, says it’s proven to be the kind of gathering everything is able to take part in. (February 12, 2010, Page 1B)
