Art, History and Literature in Charlevoix, Michigan
Our Holiday Fest began at the Circle of Arts on December 5th, where on display was the Circle Market full of hand crafted gifts for holiday shoppers. On hand were artisan demonstrations showing various techniques, so patrons could see craftsmanship at work. Music was performed by the Dorothy Gerber Strings Program quartet comprised of the Gerber teaching staff.
The Charlevoix Historical Society had refreshments, exhibits, and a holiday sale of merchandise featuring Irene Harsha-Young maps of Little Traverse, Grand Traverse and Mackinac Island and copies of their newest book, Charlevoix the Beautiful: City on Three Lakes will also be available.
The evening ended at the library with hot chocolate and the Jazz @ the library Holiday Concert at 7 pm. The Photography Exhibit with Art by LuAnn Griffin was on display. Horse-drawn wagon rides were available throughout the evening transporting people from venue to venue.
