The Visual Arts Center of Richmond (1812 W. Main St.) announces 2 free events to be held on Sunday afternoon, December 6th, between 1-5 PM, as part of its annual open house.
Art Free-For-All: Present Factory is a free event for all ages, featuring workshops in all of the Visarts studios, geared towards making holiday presents. Come on in, and try your hand at printing your own wrapping paper and letterpress holiday cards, make a holiday garland, felt hair clips, and more! Enjoy some holiday snacks and the music of the Fan District Caroling Association, along with a special performance of Silent Music Revival, who will show a silent film while local Richmond musicians Now Sleepyhead play an improvisational soundtrack.
Collectors Marcia & Harry Thalhimer, Tricia & Jack Pearsall and Tom Jones will discuss their recollections of the early years of the Craft + Design Show from 4-5 PM in the True F. Luck Gallery, in conjunction with the current exhibition, 20/20: A Look Back at the Craft + Design Show.
