10/20 Collective's Holiday Bazaar and Women's Biennial Exhibition
Two creative events collide at the heart of Erie's art scene
BEGINNING THURSDAY, DEC. 14
10/20 Collective, known for its multifaceted artistic showcases, is set to highlight the Women's Biennial Exhibition, a dazzling compilation of multidimensional works from 44 local female artists. This massive exhibition encapsulates diverse multimedia expressions, a testament to the region's rich artistic tapestry.
But that's not the only thing the collective is hosting in December. Step into the festive spirit with 10/20's inaugural Holiday Bazaar, a vibrant vendor market brimming with the talents of numerous local businesses and artists, several of whom are also featured in the Women's Biennial. Among the vendors will be unique ceramic works by Madison Rose, striking large-scale paper creations of Ana Balcázar, intricately crafted crocheted artistry of Sophia Troutman, thoughtful works on paper by Sheila Lorenzo, and original hand-embellished prints by Kaitlyn Page. Browse through Wicks and Wax's aromatic delights, Nuance Massage Therapy's wellness indulgences, and Forest Crossing Friends' captivating nature-inspired creations, among others. Each piece reflects the unique vision and craftsmanship of the 44 artists involved.
"We're hoping our community will support our local makers and artists this holiday season during our Holiday Bazaar", says program director Sarah Moody. "Our Women's Biennial is an extremely special exhibition, worth seeing and enjoying!"
The Holiday Bazaar spans three days, beginning Thursday, Dec. 14 from 5 to 8 p.m., continuing through Friday's Gallery Night on Dec. 15 from 5 to 10 p.m., and culminating with a Saturday extravaganza on Dec. 16 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Indulge your senses further with wine, food offerings, and live music performances each day, featuring melodic tunes from Jess Royer, The Rhythm and The Flavor, and other stellar talents yet to be announced.
These two events represent a celebration of art, community, and the spirit of the season at the 10/20 Collective — a kaleidoscope of creativity and local talent not to be missed.
