The second annual ornament sale was held at the Taber Museum during the weekend of December 6-8, 2020. The sale will featured the work of some of the most talented artists in Lycoming County. The sale also served as the official opening for the holiday exhibit, "When the Circus Comes to Town."
The sale included works by a diverse group of talented artists who created limited edition and one-of-a-kind ornaments for sale, each sale benefitting the Museum. The artists included: Mike Swanger, with blown glass friendship balls and icicles; Linda Campbell, stoneware pottery sleds and snowflakes; Mickey Mapstone, fabric budgies; Sally Cohick, papier-mache Santas and snowmen; Jackie Thomas, felted ornaments, fiber ornaments, and Loblolly pine needle coiled ornaments; Nadine Sapiente, stained glass snowmen and snowflakes; and Deb Parsons with lampwork (torchwork) glass angels, snowmen and icicles. In addition to the ornaments, a holiday boutique featured other works created by the artists including jewelry, pottery, silk scarves and sculpture.
This year’s featured artist was Deb Parsons with her 2019 limited edition ornament: a circus elephant reflecting the theme of the museum’s holiday exhibit, “When the Circus Comes to Town. The special ornament was quite popular, and sold out over the weekend.
Thanks to all who supported the Museum's Ornament sale and the 2019 Holiday Exhibit.
