Aldridge Gardens' Executive Director Rip Weaver joins us to discuss the upcoming "Gifts of Art" event and the annual greenery sale. Gifts of Art is an event that we'll be hosting at the Gardens on Thursday, Dec. 7th from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. It's something that gives people a different option for Christmas gifts. You can get one-of-kind works of art crafted by 12 hand-selected Alabama artists. And all of these artists create in a lot of different ways: there's ceramics, glass, wood, iron, jewelry, and fabric. You'll be able to select from original, hand-crafted works of art by Alabama Artists just in time for the holidays. Shoppers can drop in throughout the day. You can come by during your morning errands, on a lunch break, or even in the evening after work. Since this is an indoor art show, held in the art gallery at Aldridge Gardens, it will go on rain or shine. Admission is free, so bring a friend.
The annual greenery sale at the Gardens is next Saturday, December 2nd from 9 a.m. till 1 p.m. This greenery sale at the Gardens every year about this time, and everyone is invited to shop for garlands, pine cones, and other holiday decorations. The greenery is great to use to make wreaths and decorate mantles, mailboxes, and entryways. There will also be bows and tree toppers. This sale really sets the mood for the holidays.
