Some people may remember the Le Petit Noël holiday show
I used to organize in Three Rivers…the last big one was 20 years ago!
On the first weekend in December, I will again be hosting a smaller version of this fun event at my art studio. Enjoy sipping mulled cider and shopping for special artisan-made treasures.
Find us on the 1st Saturday Three Rivers map for December 3. We will also be open on December 4.
Many years ago (in another lifetime) I organized a special annual holiday event, called Le Petit Noël, which was held on Thanksgiving Weekend. It was a special time to celebrate wonderful local art and encourage local shopping for Christmas. Now, 20 years later, I am now hosting a mini-version of this event at my art studio.
Directions: going east on Highway 198 in Three Rivers, turn right at Skyline Drive (at the Veterans’ Memorial Building). Follow Skyine Drive to end (9/10 of a mile from the highway.) Look for arrow signs to the last driveway on the left just before the end of the road. Path starts at the green arbor and goes straight down to the front door of studio.
Elsah Cort is a mixed-media collage artist who will be showing her archival digital prints, greeting cards, earrings and mulling spices. She has created “Mandala-Maker”, a new 2017 calendar with twelve of her digital collage mandalas as monthly inspriations. New cloth ornaments printed with her mandalas, embroidered and assembled by hand, will debut for this year’s Le Petit Noel. She is opening her studio space for this special event.
Rosemary Odam is a beadwork artist who finds designs in her dreams and translates them into beauty into hairsticks adorned with peyote-stitched seed beadwork. She lives and works in Hanford.
Roger Valverde (husband of Jeanette Acosta) is an accomplished painter and graphic designer (for the California Department of Transportation). He will be sharing original paintings and giclee prints. His artwork is highly sought after by art collectors. Jeanette and Roger moved to Three Rivers three years ago and have restored their property along the South Fork of the Kaweah River back to a superb natural landscape (an ongoing process).
