Where is the best place in Midland to find a unique treasure for yourself or for a holiday gift? Something like an antique camera, a mid-century modern coffee pot, an original framed painting, or a unique ceramic piece?
The Second Hand Picasso Sale at Creative 360 of course!
Each year at holiday time, the Creative 360 Gallery turns into a treasure trove of art and collectibles for sale. Items are donated by the community to Creative 360 over the course of the year. Included are original art pieces, antiques, interesting collectibles, books, and more.
This year the sale opens on Friday, November 26th – the day after Thanksgiving. Early shopping is available to Creative 360 members from 6 pm until 7 pm when the sale opens to the public until 9 pm that night. There will be additional hours for everyone that weekend on Saturday, November 27th from 10 am until 1 pm.
“Last year, because of the unfortunate cancellation of all of our live performances for December, we utilized the entire upstairs Gallery for the Second Hand Picasso Sale,” Program Director and Curator, Colleen Reed, remarked. “This was so popular that we will plan to do it again, but only until November 30th because, thankfully, we DO have holiday performances this year!”
The Secondhand Picasso Sale serves as a fundraiser for the arts non-profit. All monies collected go directly to programming and operational support for 2022. The sale will continue until December 20 and hours are announced each week in the Creative 360 weekly e-newsletter.
“Even though this counts as a fundraiser for us, you would be surprised at how reasonable the prices are at this sale,” commented Director Laura Vosejpka. “Some of the items here are offered at a fraction of what they would be priced elsewhere. It is another way that Creative 360 can offer the art experience to everyone, no matter their financial means. Everyone should have the chance to have beautiful art around them!”
Masks are required while inside the Creative 360 facility for those who are not fully vaccinated and for everyone during certain high traffic daytime hours Monday through Thursday.
