Brevard Holiday Bazaar

Hosted by Shannon Whitworth and Sarah Siskind

11 a.m. -5 p.m. Dec.4, Brevard Lumber Yard, 200 King St., Brevard

If you thought Shannon Whitworth was a talented artist before, wait until you see her paintings or pottery. With friend and fellow singer-songwriter Sarah Sisking, a jeweler, Shannon will host a throwdown holiday art party, Brevard style. Benefiting the Cindy Platt Boys and Girls Club of Transylvania County, the show will feature all the usual: local fine art and paintings, jewelry, pottery, wood working, Christmas trees and wreaths, up-cycled art, baked goods and of course, music.

The Oskar Blues Chubwagon Cantina food truck adds to the fun that includes a craft table for kids, a holiday movie projected on the big white wall and a visit from Santa. Whitworth specializes in mixed media paintings and those who have seen her perform at the MountainSong Music Festival (husband Woody Platt is a member of the Steep Canyon Rangers) may have seen her art booth full of unique screen printed T-shirts and onesies. Siskind creates jewelry from findings and beads she collects on tour and now offers at her concert merchandise tables. The Brevard LumberYard is a unique special event space, musicians will jam and there’s bound to be creative and spontaneous fun right along with the art.
