Art Show and Sale
By Lucinda Bender
If you are looking for a special gift for that special someone, then you can't miss Olive Hyde's "Holiday for the Arts" Show and Sale. The show opens with a ticketed Gala on Friday night featuring hors d'oeuvres, sweets, and wine, and the first viewing and sale of art. On Saturday and Sunday, the show is open to the public without charge.
Items for sale will include original works in ceramics and glass, paintings, jewelry, fiber art, wood products, sculpture, and holiday goods. Work from over 80 artists will be on display and for sale during the event.
Funds raised from the "Holiday for the Arts" Show and Sale contribute to and help support the City of Fremont's elementary In-School Art History Program, local student scholarships and student art awards, payment of art program fees and purchase of art supplies for low income children, purchase of art books for public library and juvenile detention center, capital improvements at the Olive Hyde Art Gallery, special gallery exhibits and gallery promotions.
The "Holiday for the Arts" Show and Sale is held at the City of Fremont's Olive Hyde Art Gallery and Art Center. This charming setting of a three-room gallery building and upper Mission Room building is separated by a lovely courtyard. A large tent for food service will be set up in the courtyard for the Friday night gala.
You'll find many unique gift items and your purchases will benefit the community wide and far.
A completed gala ticket stub will serve as an entry in a drawing for an original art piece, a Photo Collage by the Olive Hyde Art Guild member, P. Kay Hille-Hatten. (Winner need not be present).
