Marlborough Arts Center’s “ARTS WEEKEND” fills the beautiful Charles W. Hall Art Gallery with artworks for sale by artists throughout the region on Saturday and Sunday, November 14 and 15 from 10 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. This is holiday shopping at its best with only unique and artist created selections for family and friends of all ages. The variety of artworks is too wide to cover in a few words, but includes fine art of oils, watercolors, pastels, acrylics, etc.; handcrafted sculptures of wood, brass, glass, and ceramic; jewelry that is one more lovely than the other; dripless beeswax candles in holiday shapes; and even artistic quilts and wreaths. There will be those serendipitous surprises as you look through. The possibilities seem endless and all these creations would be appreciated as gifts.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m., but the doors open at 7:00 so there is time to peruse the Gift Shop, choose your own seats (no advance reserved seats), then relax and settle in for what promises to be a fine evening of music and the stories behind it.
