In celebration of the first holiday season for the new Crossroads Arts Center in Wentzville, the arts council is preparing a special “Artistic Holiday Gifts” exhibit starting on December 2 through December 30, 2021. The exhibit will take place in the arts center gallery located at 310 West Pearce Boulevard (lower level) and will feature a variety of works made by local artists. Items on display will include quilts, tapestries, paintings, greeting cards, woodwork, jewelry, and much more. The center is open to the public Thursday through Sunday, from 11 AM to 3PM. Various art classes and special events will be offered at different times throughout the month as well.
The Crossroads Arts Council was founded in 2015 with a mission to cultivate, nurture, and grow the arts in our community by supporting local artists. In the past six years, council membership has grown to more than 70 members. And in May of 2021, the organization opened the Crossroads Arts Center, which includes an art gallery, classroom, meeting space, and three private studios. Council members are thrilled with the space for hosting various exhibits, art classes, writers’ group meetings, community outreach activities, and other special events. It’s a creative haven for artists and art enthusiasts alike, and a great addition to the City of Wentzville.
