Event-goers will have the opportunity to purchase beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces of art and books for either themselves, their offices or as holiday presents. Traditional art work in oil, acrylics, and watercolors will be available, along with photography, stained and fused glass, pottery, beaded work, jewelry and more. Local authors will also be in attendance. There will be live entertainment from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Art on the Harbor, featuring Chris G. performing from 10:00 to 11:30, Mike Hirst playing from 11:30 to 2:30, and Doug Coventry from 2:30-5:00.
