Don't miss the stunning array of original work in various media brought to us by the ArtWorks Foundation, which encourages public awareness of the area's active arts community. Staged at The Shops of Saddle Creek South in Germantown, WinterArts features creations by such artists as Scott Hode of Franklin, Tennesee, whose glass blown pieces (seen here) range from bathroom sinks to chandeliers at the Governor's Mansion, along with his tumblers,, bowls, vases, and his signature cactus-rose goblets.
Another participating glass blower is Missy Smitheal of Dyersburg, whose art-glass ornaments will light up any Christmas tree or make fine Hannukah gifts. Other works for sale — or simply for admiration — include Angela Goza's paintings, Lisa Butt's formed-glass jewelry, Marian McKinney's metal works, and Katie Dann's clay objects, just to name a few. You'll find creations in silk and velvet, cast aluminum, turned wood, handmade paper, sculpture, weaving, enameled jewelry, pysanky (Ukranian egg-dyeing), and more.
WinterArts runs through December 24, and is open daily. For more information go to www.winterartsmemphis.com.
