BUCHANAN ART CENTER TO HOLD WHITE SATURDAY CELEBRATION
NOVEMBER 29TH FROM 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
FEATURING GIFT SHOP SALE & RAKU WALK-THROUGH
AS PART OF DOWNTOWN BUCHANAN
As a kick-off to the 2014 holiday shopping season
and to promote shopping local (SHOLO), The Buchanan Art Center invites the public to their White Saturday Celebration -- including
A BAC Gift Shop Artists' Sale, and Raku Walk-Through Fundraiser on Saturday, November 29, 2014, from 10:00 am - 4:00
pm. Held in conjunction with the other planned efforts by fellow, downtown Buchanan merchants, the BAC White Saturday Celebration
will feature an expanded selection of unique, one-of-a-kind items from local artists currently featured in the BAC gift shop.
Participating artists will have booth space throughout the BAC galleries, and will be on-hand to answer questions and/or craft
their items during the sale. Holiday refreshments will be served.
The BAC will also offer its popular Raku Walk-Through
Fundraiser. This popular event gives participants the chance to experience the "dynamic coming together of clay, fire,
smoke and water" by offering pre-made pottery for glazing and firing in Raku kilns set-up behind the BAC. No RSVP required.
All ages are welcome. (Please note: children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.) Pre-fired pieces available for glazing
and firing are priced between $10-$25. ALL GLAZING MUST BE DONE ONE HOUR BEFORE FIRING to allow
time for drying. The entire process takes approximately 3 hours.
ARRIVE NO LATER THAN 3pm TO GLAZE. While waiting for your pots to dry be sure to check out our other activities and
shows at the Center and then spend some time exploring all of Buchanan's businesses, downtown and uptown, for shopping
and food on White Saturday. Everyone is welcome to come and just watch the fun!
