What to do on a cold winter's day?
Come to Palmerton Area Library's Art Show and Lunch on Sunday, Jan. 29, from 12 to 3 p.m. and warm up your soul. Doors will not open until noon.
The Friends of the Library will host the event, which includes lunch and artwork by local artists. The artwork will also be available for purchase.
This is the library's biggest fundraiser of the year.
The art show is looking for more artists to showcase their work. Bring no more than three pieces per artist. Pieces must be framed and ready to hang with a wire on the back.
Paintings should be delivered to the library no later than 12 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 26. Each artist may set his/her own price on each work at the time of registration. If the work sells, the library keeps 20 percent and the artist receives 80 percent of the selling price. Work not sold the day of the show will remain on display for two weeks at which time the artist must return to the library to pick up unsold items.
Work may be picked up the day of the show after 3 p.m. if the artist makes this known to the library.
There is no entry fee for artists to display their work. There is a fee to attend the show and have lunch.
If you have any questions, please call the library at (610) 826-3424.
The library is located at 402 Delaware Ave., Palmerton.
