4th Annual "Keep the Home Fires Burning"
Community Fundraiser
Celebrations Gallery & Shoppes in Pomfret invites you to help keep the home fires burning for the many local families who will need heating assistance this winter. Celebrations is selling HomArt wooden matches in decorative boxes and Colonial Candles votives for $10 each now through January 11, 2015 . Once again, Celebrations will donate 100% of the sales to the Access Agency's LIHEAP (Low Income Heating Assistance Program).

With the support of generous customers, Celebrations has raised $7,500 in the past three years and anticipates tremendous community support for the 4th winter season of this community partnership. Shirley Riemann, Access Agency's Director of Community Services, gratefully acknowledges the difference that Celebrations and their customers have made and hopes for another successful year of this fundraiser.
Each box of matches (in a variety of decorative styles) and each votive (in several fragrances) is festively gift wrapped and comes with a gift card to let recipients know that a donation has been made in their name. "Keep the Home Fires Burning" matches and candles make thoughtful holiday gifts and, more importantly, warm neighbors in need during the cold winter months. Celebrations will also accept cash or check donations for this fundraiser. To find out additional ways to assist Access Agency’s programs, contact Shirley Riemann at 860-412-1603 or shirley.riemann@accessagency.org

Join over 100+ artists as they open their studios this weekend:

Del-Bouree Bach "Sailing Red" 7x7, acrylic
 RED HOT! - Gala Opening Saturday, October 25, from 6-9 at the Courtyard Gallery

As the weather gets cooler, the temperature in the Courtyard Gallery is heating up!
We hope you will be able to join us for the opening of an exciting new exhibit:
RED HOT! Variations on a Theme
Saturday Oct. 25, 6-9PM

The show runs through November 30th and features new work created for the show by 40 painters and sculptors, each shedding a different light on the theme. The work has been arriving all week and we are delighted with each new piece, each a unique interpretation of Red Hot!

Many of the artists will be on hand for the opening, and the one and only Mark Taber will be tickling the ivories. Of course there will be plenty of wine, cider and lots of goodies and good company. It's a great way to celebrate all the colors of the season!

During the run of the show, everyone will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite piece and we will give out the Peoples' Choice awards (1st, 2nd and 3rd) on Sunday November 23 at a very special Sunday Salon.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday or any time!
