A “Coffee, Cake and Chocolates Meet and Greet with the Artists” is being hosted from 4-7 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 9, at Braselton Gallery.
Located at 36 Frances St., in downtown Braselton, it’s a place “Where Artists and Art Lovers Collaborate, Create and Celebrate,” according to owner Debra Swantek Brooks.
A consignment gallery which also offers services including custom framing, Braselton Gallery marked its grand opening Nov. 10, and participates with Braselton festivals and events.
Brooks opened Braselton Gallery last fall and has thus far attracted 33 local artists to display and make available for sale their work – from pottery to jewelry, from handcrafted furniture and unique, one-of-a-kind boxes to ironwork, from Americana designs to photography.
“We have so much wonderful local talent and people are impressed when they come in the door,” says Brooks, continuing that each of the 33 current artists have their own story waiting to be told. “Many say ‘this is what this area needed’.”
“I want this to be a fun place where artists can come in and do work and collaborate – where the focus is on art and having a good time,” said Brooks.
Everyone is welcome to the special weekend activities Braselton Gallery is jointly hosting with other downtown Braselton shops. The artists meet and greet will be a chance to hear some of the artists’ stories as you see their work.
