The Holidays are here and the Ashe County Arts Council is offering The Holiday Christmas Crawl, which will feature the West Jefferson downtown galleries all decked out in their holiday finery on Friday, Dec. 3, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Sponsored by the Ashe County Arts Council, the Christmas Crawl showcases and promotes the varied artistic talents in Downtown West Jefferson just in time for holiday shopping.

New creative and innovative works by local Ashe County’s artists will make gift-giving a pleasure. The galleries and shops are alive with colors, textures and smells of the season that invite the explorer to experience something new and exciting.

The Ashe Arts Center will feature Tree Fest with seven decorated trees, handmade ornaments and miniature paintings by local artists, just the right size for gift giving. The Gallery Shop features pottery, wood, jewelry, baskets, books and more.
