Now in its second incarnation, the Winter Doldrums Arts and Crafts Show is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 23, at the Christmas Valley Boosters building in Christmas Valley.
This year’s event will be held from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and is open to the general public at no charge. The entry fee for those who seek to display their hand-made artistry or craft items is $5 per entry with a maximum of three entries per applicant due to space limitations.
The event was established last year as an opportunity for something to do during the slow, monotonous winter months, said event coordinator Julie Crowl.
“By the end of February, everyone needs a break,” she said of the event’s intent to bring people out and about during the doldrums of winter. “We have a very creative county.”
Expected items to be displayed during the event include oil, watercolor and acrylic samplings of art work, jewelry, sculptures, fabric arts and wall art, she said.
The event is not emphasized as a vendor show, though if entrants wish to sell their items, a one percent cut will be deducted from their sales for the Friends of the Christmas Valley library and Christmas Valley main branch operations.
