For the third year, the Cattaraugus County Arts Council is producing the holiday fine art sale from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Grand Hall of the Seneca Allegany Administration Building at 90 Ohiyo Way, right off the casino exit in Salamanca.
“We chose the Seneca Administration building because of its central location and the fact that all the Routes to Art artists can easily fit inthe Grand Hall. Instead of shopping in a mall from store to store, shoppers make their way from booth to booth finding unique and affordable holiday gifts,” said Anne Conroy-Baiter, executive director of the Cattaraugus County Arts Council
The sale features some of the participating artists in next year’s 2013 Routes to Art open studio tour. Now in its sixth year, Routes to Art (RTA) is an annual, self-guided, open-studio artists’ tour taking place across Cattaraugus County and the Seneca Nation of Indians. Next year’s tour is scheduled for May 18-19, 2013.
Regional artists like Cherie Antle, Anne Conroy-Baiter, Patricia Eckstrom, Karen Fitzpatrick, Elliott Hutten, Elizabeth Jankowski, Dawn Lombardi, Tom Martin, Keith McKale, Kristina McLeod, Penny Minner, Rose Nuszkowski, Dee Smith, Dug Stein, Cheryl Tome, Michael Weishan and others will display and sell many cash-and-carry items. Shoppers can expect to find cards, books, prints, jewelry, pottery, ornaments, as well as paintings, stained glass, basket weaving, woodcarving, photography and more.
“The Holiday Sale is a great opportunity to see a selection of our Routes to Art artists in one location under one roof. In this economy, when it’s so important to support local commerce, the Routes to Art Holiday Sale makes it easy to find the perfect holiday gifts and feel good about your purchases,” said Conroy-Baiter.
