|Christmas in the Country|
Volcano Art Center's 2012 Christmas in the Country kicks off with our annual Members' Appreciation Reception on Friday, November 16 from 5:30-8pm.
Each year, on the Friday before Thanksgiving, Volcano Art Center's Christmas in the Country begins. This is the time of year when the Volcano area has traditionally marked the start of the holiday season. Dozens of Hawai'i artists and artisans help VAC kick off the holidays over the last two weekends in November.
Children and adults are invited to enjoy the festive atmosphere and colorful decorations throughout the following weeks. Our Annual Invitational Wreath Exhibit features one-of-a-kind wreaths in a variety of imaginative media, techniques, and styles, from the whimsical to the classical. You'll be amazed at what some artists choose to include in their highly creative concepts of "wreath." Astute collectors looking for truly original wreaths will want to be among the first to see, and choose from, the exhibit.
At this time of year, our Gallery maintains the atmosphere of an old-fashioned Christmas, in our 1877 historic building replete with fire in the fireplace and a tree with all the trimmings. We carry unique island-inspired gift items, ornaments, and home decorations made by our artists and artisans only for the holiday season, including some that are Volcano Art Center exclusives.
Christmas in the Country continues this year on Saturday and Sunday, November 17-18 and over Thanksgiving weekend, November 23-25; our Annual Invitational Wreath Exhibit opens on November 17 and continues through January 6, 2012.
