The Whimsical Women

By Rachel H and Guest Blogger Liz S

Mark your calendars right now!
Whimsical Women Fall Art Sale
Saturday, November 21, 2009 (rain date Sunday November 22)
10 AM to 2:30 PM
2233 Vienna Dozier Rd. in beautiful Pfafftown

Yes, there is so much to do this weekend in the Triad, but I am reserving a few hours on Saturday to attend this wonderful event inspired and created by local women like yourself. There is not one individual word to describe this event, so our guest blogger Liz summed it up like this, "Funky. Eclectic. Whimsical. Fabulous. Recycled. Ultra-cool. Inspirational. FUN!"

This is an event not to miss. The 13th annual Fall Sale features all hand-crafted works of art in metal, glass, clay, fiber, paper, wood, and much more. Shop the gamut from sculpture, collage, garden art, and mosaics to jewelry, wearable art, pottery, and decorative treasures. Join over 65 artists for a day of creative celebration. There is nothing else quite like it in the Triad.

Whimsical Women was founded 13 years ago by Luli and Linda, 2 very creative sisters who wanted to honor their mother’s memory through art. The first event started as a small show and each year has grown as other female artists have asked to join in. The group is now over 125 artists strong from all over North Carolina, so you may be surprised to see a familiar face of a friend who is showing off her artwork this year as well. Whimsical Women gives new artists the opportunity to put their artwork out to the public through a network of support and encouragement.

The Whimsical Women Art Shows have always focused on celebrating women artists and creating a festive atmosphere for all to enjoy. There are 2 Sales each year: one in Pfafftown in the fall and one in the Chapel Hill area in early May.

As you can tell from the photos throughout this blog, there is a little something for everyone. As if this display of artwork and creativity was not enough, delicious food and refreshments will also be served. A bonus for all the mommies out there who can't come solo to the show - children can enjoy hayrides and a small petting farm! Don't these women just think of everything?

Please make yourself a note that this is cash and checks only. Parking available on site at the farm. As far as actually entering this event ... free! Can you think of a better way to spend your morning? Gather your girlfriends and we'll see you at the farm!

Triad Smarty Pants is always my go-to website to find things to do on the weekends! I always check back at your posts on Wednesdays that list the events for the weekend and we always find something fun to do. I appreciate you highlighting events such as this one and the Festival of Trees. I have heard about both, but have never known the details. Thanks for the 4-1-1!
