ARTIST RECEPTION AND
UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER PARTY

Arts on Grand is excited to invite you to join us in celebrating our latest exhibit, “Art on a Card” in the gallery, Thursday, December 4th, 5 – 7 PM. Enjoy tasty refreshments and reindeer games whilst viewing original pieces of art created by local artists that celebrate the season. Selected artworks have been printed as cards, allowing attendees to send festive cheer and artistic wishes of good will to all of their friends and family. And as always, receptions at Arts on Grand are free to the public!

            Party goers are encouraged to don their most festive of gear and wear their favorite ugly Christmas sweaters with pride. If you believe you have the best (or worst) sweater in the land, then we invite you to compete in AOG’s very first, Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest! For a $5 entry fee or a donation of two bottles of wine to help stock our bar, contest participants are in the running for hilarious prizes!

Consider Arts on Grand’s Ugly Christmas Sweater Party for your office’s holiday celebrations this year. All are welcome and no sweater is too ugly! 

So come Knitwear, come Sweaters, come Fuzzy Pullovers! Come Cabled, or Argyle-d, just simply come covered! We’ll see you at the Ugly Christmas Sweater Party, Thursday, December 4th, 5 - 7 PM.
