Baum School of Art Holiday Gift Gallery – closing on December 21

The last day to take in this holiday gift event at the Baum School of Art is December 21. On that day, you can attend the closing reception as well as the rest of Destination Arts: Third Thursday, when Downtown Allentown is filled with arts related events and there are restaurant specials, happy hours, live music, late retail shopping and the Allentown Art Museum is free and open untilĀ 8pm.

The Holiday Gift Gallery’s reception hours are 6-8 PM, December 21. Baum School of Art is located at 510 Linden Street, Allentown, PA.

indiemade craft market, Allentown, PA, coming up on December 2

It’s December, and that means the indiemade craft market, Allentown, PA, is back. This show is dear to my heart for a lot of reasons, and especially so this year. Ann and Teri started this event 10 years ago to showcase quirky and original craft. They have done much more than that – they’ve created a welcoming place for artists and crafters to exhibit, they put on a show that is a party as well, and they have become friends I value highly.

This year is the last year they will run the show; they are turning it over to a capable successor and the show will go on. But it won’t be the same without them, and I for one will miss their involvement.

So this year is special.

Come and see the show. I’ll have tiles and other clay items for sale. Don’t forget, there is a swag bag for the first 50 adult attendees. I warn you, you will need to get in line a couple of hours early if you want to get in on this last bit!


1221 S. Front Street, Allentown, PA, is the location. Hours are 10 AM to 5 PM on Saturday, December 2, 2017.

Art in the Park, tomorrow in Allentown, PA

I’m slow with mentioning this show- my computer has been struggling this past week. (I’m doing this post from my phone).

Anyway, this show is tomorrow. A change of location, though… instead of being in West Park, due to predictions of rain, we’ll be in the Masonic Temple building right next to the park. Address is 1524 West Linden.  Hours are 10 AM to 5 PM. 

So you don’t have to worry about weather, you can see an art show, and check out the inside of a striking building. Hope to see you if you’re in the area!

A scene from last year’s show…

Hello!

Hi, I’m Claudia McGill, an artist working in acrylics, clay, and collage. I will keep you up to date on my art activities through this site. You can find my show schedule here and I’ll post announcements of my art doings.

I have an art blog, Claudia McGill and Her Art World, in which I chronicle my art life and post current work.

I write poetry, and I publish it on Claudia McGill Writes Poetry, Did You Know That?

Take a look at those if you like! And thank you for stopping by.
