Art and more will be on sale.
An artful start to the holidays posted on 11/01/2017

Approximately five years ago, the last Wine and Arts Fair took place at The Resort at The Mountain. But this November, The Resort brings back a re-envisioned version, called the Holiday Artisan Fair, on Saturday, Nov. 25.

Sales Manager Christine Magnuson noted the focus for the event will be on artists and holiday shopping, with a large range of mountain artists and some mountain-based businesses having booths.

There will also be food and drinks available for purchase.

“The new owners want to bring back some old community events they had long ago, and this is the start of that,” Magnuson said. “I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

The family friendly event will have free admission, and the list of area artists participating include watercolorist Steve Ludeman, screen prints by Sue Allen, photography by Gary Randall, jewelry by Becky Semler, bath and body products by S. A. Plunkett Naturals and a variety of different pieces by the artists from Mt. Hood Art Online.

“In years past, this event was an anticipated tradition; celebrating fall with friends and neighbors, enjoying fine wine and art, and getting a start on holiday shopping,” wrote Caryn Tilton, artist and owner of Mt. Hood Art Online, in an email. “Speaking for all of the Mt. Hood Art Online artists, we are grateful to Christine and the resort for bringing this opportunity back to the mountain.”

Magnuson noted that one focus of the event is keeping things local.

“I really love that nearly all of the vendors are from The Mt. Hood Community and Gresham, this event will be a great way to directly support our neighbors,” Magnuson noted. “It really is just a great way to start off the holiday season for us.”

Allen said that she participated in a number of the old Wine and Art Fairs, enjoying the small format where artists could get to know each other. She sees the new incarnation as a way of sharing local talent with the community and visitors, and offering a chance for people to get unique gifts for the holidays.

“Giving a gift of locally created art gives support to a local, and also gives a more personal meaning to the gift itself,” Allen wrote in an email.

The Holiday Artisan Fair will be from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 25, in the Cascade Ballroom at The Resort at The Mountain, 68010 E. Fairway Ave. in Welches. Admission is free. For more information, call 503-622-3101.
