February 2017: Pour Amour

Now that the holidays are over, it is time to start thinking about that special person in your life.  Valentine’s Day is almost here.  Fresh artists offer a wide variety of possible gift ideas for your sweetheart. 

Fresh is thrilled to offer an event for the third year.  On Second Saturday, Fresh Gallery will host “Pour Amour.”  On Saturday, February 11th from 11am to 6pm, wine glasses painted by Fresh Artists will be available to purchase at $14 each or two for $24.  Want to paint your own?  That's a new option available this year for the same prices.   A “pour” of wine will be offered with each glass (non-alcoholic beverages available to those not 21 years of age).  This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire an original piece of art from your favorite Fresh artist and share an afternoon with your Valentine.

A portion of the proceeds of Pour Amour glasses purchased during the month will be donated to the Picking Up the Pieces organization.  Picking Up the Pieces is a support group of 80 local women; fighters and survivors of all types of cancers.   The support group meets once a month, coordinates meals and care packages, recognizes and meets the needs of those fighting cancer.  By purchasing glasses, you are not only supporting local artists, but an organization dedicated to helping cancer patients.

While Valentine’s Day has been a part of the world’s history for centuries, it wasn’t until the 18th century that it evolved into a celebration of expressed love through the exchange of gifts.  Hearts, cupids, doves and flowers are common symbols still used today to convey love and romance.  Stop in at Fresh Gallery to see what we have to help you show your sweetheart just how much you care!

 

 

First Friday marks the beginning of the month of love and sweethearts.  Please take the time to stop by during the Art Walk on February 3, 2017 from 6pm to 10pm and meet our talented artists.  Fresh Gallery is located at 400 W Walnut St in downtown Springfield.  We are on the corner of Walnut and Campbell.  See you there!

In addition to the First Friday Art Walk festivities, Fresh Gallery will also be a part of Second Saturdays in downtown on February 11, 2017.  This is just another wonderful opportunity to meet some of the artists of Fresh.  As always, shop local and support the area’s artists.

Any artist wishing information on becoming a part of this exciting endeavor may contact Fresh Gallery at (417) 862-9300, or find us on Facebook.
