From November 26 to December 11 the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center Mansion will be open to the public to celebrate a new type of holiday tradition, one filled with art and holiday cheer. Friends sit beside a blazing fire in the Wine Bar and Beer Garden, as families gather by the outdoor fire pits and make s’mores. Jazzy holiday sounds will fill the air while you peruse our holiday artist market, play classic board games in the Library with a glass of mulled wine, or learn how to build and decorate your very own gingerbread house. Other mini-workshops feature Callanwolde’s most popular year-round classes, including Throwing Pottery at the Wheel, Raku Firing, Jewelry Making, Glass Etching and Blacksmithing. Santa will be making a special trip to the mansion from up north for photo sessions with furry friends and families. Jazz legend Joe Gransden will be performing with his quartet on December 4, and an array of pianists will be tickling the keys of the Steinway piano most evenings, including Jazz on the Lawn artist Joe Alterman on November 26. Robin Latimore will also be belting out soulful vocals on November 27. Resident professional dance company, Kit Modus, will perform on December 2 and 3, and Callanwolde’s very own dancers will be putting on the holiday show, Our Common Joy, on December 10 and 11. Entry to the mansion is free, but guests must pre-purchase all ticketed workshops, performances, and events before coming to Callanwolde. Open 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
