To celebrate creativity, Made in Clarkdale invites you to the 34th Annual Artists’ Exhibition in December, according to a press release.
This community art exhibit takes place in the historic Clark Memorial Clubhouse on 9th Street and Main Street and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Thursday, December 2 to Sunday, December 5.
Since 1987, artists living, working or educated in Clarkdale have shared their love of art with the public through an annual showcase of Made in Clarkdale artists. Representing a diverse range of mediums ranging from traditional art paintings, ceramics, wood, weaving, gourds, basketry and jewelry to more modern art forms including digital photography, mixed media and recycling, there is always something to love!
Each year is different and exciting as new artists join in and add their creative vision. This year, Made in Clarkdale is looking forward to collaborating with the artists at Reitz Ranch and has added two new members.
They are: Bonnie Lane, who makes beautiful glass solar lights from recycled glassware, and ArLean Minnick, who currently creates glass collages.
COVID-19 has changed the world, however, it hasn’t stopped artists from creating. The challenge spurs creativity and the Made in Clarkdale artists are up to the task. They are especially excited to share their artistic endeavors with you, as always in the historic Clarkdale Clubhouse. They redesigned the exhibition floor plan, creating a spacious and inviting environment to cultivate reflection and discussion, and of course, revel in the art.
Scheduled entertainment has been put on hold this year, but you might be pleasantly surprised to hear an impromptu performance at any time from one of our many local talents.
The enthusiasm for the Made in Clarkdale artist showcase is alive and well! This is a great opportunity to see amazing works of art, meet artists and buy “unique” originals! There is something for everyone. Come, bring your friends and family and enjoy! Free and open to the public.
