The Artists Helping Artists Gallery, located in downtown Havana, recently held a special De-Stash event on Saturday morning, July 10.
Several Gadsden locals and travelers passed through and filled the little gallery, appreciating the art on display, and making the event a success.
Joy Green, a volunteer for the gallery – and local artist herself – served as the hostess for the event.
Every art appreciator who walked through the gallery doors was greeted by Green with a hello and a smile, providing an excellent customer service experience to all who attended.
Green had several items of her own display for sale, including a variety of vibrant colored paintings featuring frogs, horses, and cats.
The De-Stash event served as an opportunity for local artists to sell new and used crafting materials and products that were overstock in their inventories.
Many of the artists’ tables displayed items such as rolls of ribbon, glass beads, cuts of fabric, yarn, and sewing supplies – items that are always in high demand for crafting needs.
After making purchases at the gallery, many shoppers made their way over to the Farmer’s Market, where a variety of vendors were selling products such as homemade soaps, honey, candy apples, and fresh vegetables.
The Artists Helping Artists Gallery is opened to the public once a month, usually on the second Saturday of the month.
The gallery is located at 307 North Main Street, in downtown Havana.
