Skip the mall madness and head to River Gallery
Looking for an alternative to the Black Friday tornado? If you’re trying to redirect your attention away from the post-Thanksgiving whirlwind of retail this year, River Gallery has your back. Head to the Bluff to visit their holiday open house instead of getting into a cage match over an Xbox.
The open house will feature two of the gallery’s working artists, Michael Thiele and Andrea Wilson, as they show visitors how they create their pieces and discuss the final results. River Gallery will also be announcing their holiday promotion, which will support the Orange Grove Center.
Michael Thiele creates beautiful drums out of hardwood, each with unique qualities and intricacies worked into their surfaces. Visitors will be able to watch him play his creations and show off their designs. Meanwhile, Andrea Wilson paints watercolor paintings of leaves so realistic they could be mistaken for the real thing, and will demonstrate her techniques as you watch.
The open house begins at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 27, and goes until 5 p.m. that evening at River Gallery, 400 E. 2nd St. Admission is free. Call (423) 265-5033 ext. 5 or visit river-gallery.com for more information.
