2018 Artists’ Hall of Fame

5:30 PM Saturday, November 17, 2018  

Sunnehanna Country Club

Did you know that students involved in the arts are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement?

At the Bottle Works Arts on Third Avenue, we are well aware of the positive benefits of the arts and are proud that our educational programs make a difference in hundreds of lives each year. We are a multi-functional organization, but this is what we hold most dear. In fact, we believe so strongly in the importance of arts education that we are making it the focus of our most prestigious annual fundraising event, the Artists’ Hall of Fame Dinner scheduled for 5:30 PM November 17, 2018, at Sunnehanna Country Club.

The Artists’ Hall of Fame, now in its 17th year, is a special evening which showcases and honors individuals who have climbed the ladder of artistic excellence or had a positive impact on the arts. More than 200 people typically attend the event, which aims to be our major annual fundraiser.

Bottle Works is proud to announce that John Pencola, Dan Eash, and Michael Hood have been selected as Honorees for the 2018 Artists’ Hall of Fame. Learn more about the Honorees.

Each honoree has excelled in the teaching field but has also used the arts to enhance the quality of living in our community and region. This year, each has also gone above and beyond the call of duty to teach, lead and share their knowledge with others.

We believe you share our vision for the future…one in which arts and culture thrive! Please consider making a meaningful contribution to the 2018 Artist Hall of Fame in support of these and many other fine teachers and instructors across the region. All net proceeds will benefit the Bottle Works’ Lifelong Learning Initiative which provides art education from preschool age to adults as well as professional enrichment for artists.

Small Business Saturday Art Vendor Event

The 2018 Small Business Saturday Art Vendor Event at the Bottle Works Gallery Shoppe is happening November 24 2018
from 10 AM-7 PM.

This year’s event promises to be bigger and better. The Gallery Shoppe is taking over the rest of the Exhibit space to make room for 20+ art vendors. Each and every artist will have their own unique gifts for your family and friends, and just maybe something for you too. Not to mention the Gallery Shoppe itself will be packed full of one of a kind items from:

KWelsh Frameworks, Artique Gallery, Bead Chicks (Ja-Re Designs & Clementine), Sheepskin Shop, Motions in Glass, Laurel Highlands Alpaca, Maelee Bows, Alan Rauch Fine Art, Lambcakes, The Sheet Shop, Jaime Helbig, Pause for Paws, Marianne Spampineto, Frogfun, Portraits by Marcie, J-2 Pens, Scott Steberger, and more!

“When you buy something form an artist you are buying more than an object. You’re buying hundreds of hours of errors and experimentation. You’re buying years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You’re not buying just one thing, you are buying a piece of a heart, a piece of a soul…a piece of someone else’s life.” Rebekah Joy Plett

What better gift than that!

Do your part and Shop Small on Small Business Saturday!

While you are here you will be able to take in the amazing Eye of the Needle exhibit, and enjoy our Small Works in Large Space National Juried Show as well.

Bring the kids along to the Bottle Works Small Business Saturday Event on November 24th from 10-7! While you shop they can decorate their very own Snowman Sugar Cookie, courtesy of Lambcakes.  Lambcakes will also have lots of holiday goodies available for purchase the day of the event!

We will be topping the evening off with a live concert kicking off the CD Launch for the Tribune Democrat’s new Holiday Album!

Of course, no event at the Bottle Works would be complete without great food and entertainment. Stay tuned for more announcements!
