SAWliday Open House 2017

Save the date for our SAWliday Open House on Saturday, December 9, from 3-8pm!

You know the drill: mix & mingle with 25+ artists, see their studios, find awesome gifts for friends & family, and enjoy an afternoon and evening at SAW! Jewelry, painting, pottery, printmaking, photography, and more.

SAW artists will also be donating their artwork for a silent auction (same day, at SAW) to benefit the Carbondale Clay Center’s Angus Graham Memorial Scholarship. Angus Graham passed away this fall and was a ceramic artist at SAW for many years; we’re honored to be able to support the Clay Center in his memory.

We look forward to seeing you all!
