Eugene and Myla Montgomery (or Designs by Myla and Eugene) announced that they have joined the Artists Sunday alliance, and that they will promote local artisans and craftspeople on Artists Sunday, which is celebrated on November 29, the Sunday after Thanksgiving.
Artist Sunday, falling between Black Friday, Small Business Saturday® and Cyber Monday, is a day dedicated to encouraging consumers to shop with artists and give something special, unique, and hand-crafted this holiday season. Eugene and Myla appreciate the culture artists create and the impact they have on our local community, while adding expression and beauty to our lives.
With the cancelling of Holiday Bazaars and Art Shows, Eugene and Myla looked for other venues to sell their artwork -- Then came along Artists Sunday. What a great idea! They miss the socializing at the Shows and meeting new friends and seeing former acquaintances.
Artists from across the country are participating in Artists Sunday, representing a full range of art, hand-crafted items, and performances. The diversity of artisans allows consumers to ‘shop art’ this Artists Sunday and give something personal and meaningful this holiday season.
