On behalf of the Stokes County Arts Council, we would like to thank everyone who participated with the Christmas in Historic Danbury event this year on Sunday, December 6th, a wonderful, well-attended event co-sponsored with the Town of Danbury, Stokes County Historical Society, and Artist’s Way Creations. The Stokes County Arts Council would like to thank Kim Clayton with her basket weaving demonstration, Stephanie Ellis-Wise with her spinning wheel demonstration, and Mark Bowman with his characterture drawings. Everyone enjoyed the charactertures, the participants as well as the spectators. Thank you to Julie Morgan with her special reading and Mike Davis with his heritage wood carving demonstration at the museum. We would also like to say thank you to Joseph Brunjes, violinist, who provided wonderful and festive music in the gallery as well as Brack Llewellyn and the Nonesuch carolers who also provided a wonderful program of music at Artist’s Way, in the Apple Gallery, and during the candle lighting and tree lighting service sponsored by the Town of Danbury.
Christmas in Historic Danbury would not be Christmas without the entire Santa family from the North Pole who took the time to make photos with the kids, take Christmas orders as well as pass out candy.
Thank you to the performers: Roslyn Covington, Micah Phillips, CC Dance Company under the direction of Claudia Cotter, and Karen Mercer.
And, a big thank you to all the participating artists/artisans who filled the Apple Gallery with beautiful works of art which are on display and available for purchase. A special “thank you” to all of the volunteers — your volunteer service to the Arts Council, the Town of Danbury, the Stokes County Museum and Artist’s Way Creations and to your community is inspiring and greatly appreciated! We could not host events without your participation and encouragement.
