NCLAC to host weekend holiday arts market

For a unique, locally crafted gift for this holiday season, this weekend’s art market may be the answer.

The North Central Louisiana Arts Council is hosting a Holiday Arts Market from noon to 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4, at the Norton Building in downtown Ruston.

Area artists will be selected to display and sell their works of original, handmade items at an affordable price. A variety of artist vendors will be available selling unique items such as precious stone jewelry, wooden turned bowls, hand-crafted books, artisan soaps and essential oils, leather goods, recycled textile wearables, calligraphy stationary, ceramics, paintings, photography and more.

Local musicians will also be performing during the Holiday Arts Market. For example, Louisiana Tech’s choral department will perform a holiday-themed choral arrangement at 1:30 p.m., followed by Grammy-nominated blues artist Buddy Flett, accompanied by local percussionist Bill Deese, who will both take the stage at 2 p.m. Another well-known artist, The Hardrick Rivers Revue, will perform at 3 p.m.

NCLAC is a nonprofit organization that promotes and fosters arts opportunities in Lincoln, Claiborne, Bienville, Jackson and Union parishes.
