To cap their 2017 exhibit season, Logan County Arts members will hold their annual Holiday Show and Shop event at the Lincoln Art Institute Gallery at 112 S. McLean St, Lincoln. The show will open with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, November 9, 2017.

For this event, the artists will present a wide variety of items suitable as gifts and holiday decor, including original artwork and photography with local and nature themes, unique decorated serving trays, Scandinavian ornaments, interior décor, greeting cards, and other holiday decorations. According to gallerist Moses Pinkerton, the holiday show has been a success in the past. “People appreciate the chance to select a gift that is special, one of a kind. And the artists are showing works that will appeal to all ages, at prices that won’t break the bank.”

In addition, a unique feature of the show this year will be a silent auction, to take place between 5 and 7 pm during the opening. Each artist has donated a piece for the bidding, and all proceeds will go to the upkeep of the Art Institute Gallery.

Bidders will not need to be present to claim their winnings. Artists Sheralyn Bolton, Mitch Douglas, Jen Grimaldi, Jason Hoffman, Pam Moriearty, Bev Noble, Moses Pinkerton, Nancy Saul, Tony Shuff, Cheryl Spove, Rob Swofford, Randy Washam and Jeff Williamson will have works for purchase.

Pam Moriearty’s photo of a rustic lantern would provide a rich pop of color to a casual or country setting.  This piece, as well as artworks and décor by 12 other local artists, will be in Logan County Arts’ silent auction at the Lincoln Art Institute Gallery on November 9, 2017.

After the initial reception, The Art Institute Gallery will open on request for shoppers during the holiday season until Dec. 16. For an appointment, people may call Pinkerton at 217-651-8355 or Mitch Douglas at 630-890-1318.
