For your viewing pleasure, above is the finished version of a previous article about a recent Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft‘s holiday fundraiser. “Martinis and Mistletoe” was a jubilee evening of holiday cheer hosted at the contemporary museum featuring festive cocktails, classic guitar tunes of Silver Bells, a glowing crowd of art patrons.
The museum supports artisans in a professional, well represented gallery setting that offers increased exposure and sales. The nonprofit also focuses on education for school children and adults alike, artist professional development, and scholarships. The museum is out to help enable the work of Kentucky, regional, national and international artisans while also engaging the public in such work.
The two attendees above stood facing a gallery space (turned martini bar) admiring hand-crafted quilts and glass-blown vessels. Holiday cheer was inevitable with such amazing arts and crafts, peppermint and eggnog concoctions in martini glasses, and great company.
