The Taber Museum's Annual Ornament Sale and Holiday Exhibit Opening took pace on the weekend of December 3, 2021. LCHS members got the first shot at purchasing unique, hand made ornaments at the sale during the first hour before the show opened to the public.
The well attended event was successful for both the local artists and the Museum. Refreshments were served.
Participating in this year’s ornament sale were Deb Parsons (lampworked glass), Mickey Mapstone (birds), Catheal Weiser (Ukrainian eggs), Mike Swanger (blown glass), Jackie Thomas (felted ornaments), Sara Kiehl (calligraphy & wood art), Nadine Sapiente (stained glass), Meg Smith (wire and gemstones), Erma Woodis (mini paintings), Mallory Gardner (felted animals) and our featured artist Linda Campbell (ceramics). The sale also featured other creative works including jewelry, sculpture, handbags, pottery, and fiber wearables. Candles made by the Miles Welby a Candle Company were also be available.
The attendees also got a first look at the Taber Museum's holiday exhibit “My Favorite Gift’, which is open now through January 15, 2021.
