ART Sponsors New Market Fundraiser

The creative home furnishings network, ART, along with Residential Lighting/Home Fashion Forecast presents “Local ART - Artisans, Rhythm and Tastes,” premiering at the Fall 2012 High Point Market on Monday, Oct. 15, from 7pm to 9pm in the Market event space between IHFC and Showplace.

Local ART brings to the High Point Market audience a taste of what is current, hip, and fresh from the growing community and creative culture of the N.C. Piedmont area. Attendees will have their choice of artisan fare from regionally-based food trucks, Durham to Charlotte, venerated regional music by Mipso, and organically grown wine from Benjamin Vineyards and Winery.

Locally brewed beer from Natty Greene’s will be available to all as part of the $10 donation fee. This donation allows ART to fund educational opportunities at all the markets across the country throughout the year.

Doug Self, of J.Douglas and chairman of ART’s host committee said, “Our intent is to expose Market visitors to a full array of fresh and exciting offerings from this region, perhaps something they would have missed otherwise, all while networking with peers from every facet of the home industry. This is a real benefit of ART, and our sponsors and the association are committed to community, industry education, sustainability, and creativity. The event promises to be ongoing.”
