Whiskey Junction & Eagle’s Club : new artist venues for Seward Winter Frolic

Artists who have yet to register for the Frolic now have one more venue option to consider! WJ

Whiskey Junction – also the site of the Frolic’s afterparty on Sat. 12/6 – is excited to host artists during the day. There are perks to consider. Artists who chose this venue, can register at that location for only $15. Artists at Whiskey Junction can sell artwork during the evening’s afterparty, too.

This would be for only Day #1 of the Frolic; artists can sign up (for $25) to do both days and be at the Eagle’s Club on Day #2. Word has it, there’s a big football game that day and the bar is hosting a square dance during the late morning/early afternoon so the space is sure to be hopping.

Register online here. The absolute last registration deadline is 11/3.

Solo Exhibitions Program at the Nomad – accepting applications

From the fine folks at Altered Esthetics:

“Through the Solo Exhibitions program, Altered Esthetics provides an opportunity for artistic growth, access, exploration, and the promotion of emerging artists through community outreach and local partnerships. In addition to providing Nomad World Pub for a solo show in the community, Altered Esthetics assists with career guidance and growth with organization and business skills needed to develop and maintain a successful art career.

The solo exhibitions program is an exceptional program for emerging artists because it not only helps them have a successful first opening experience, but it also trains them to step to the next level in their artistic careers. Are you interested in applying to the program for next year?

You can review the application at:

The deadline for applications to the 2015 Solo Exhibitions Program is September 5th.”


Saturday’s Lighting Ceremony

One of the beautiful traditions of the Seward Winter Frolic is the Lighting Ceremony. UPDATE: This beautiful tradition has now been CANCELLED for 2013 due to inclement (really cold) weather.

At 5pm on Sat., day #1 of the art crawl, folks will gather at Triangle Park to drink hot chai by Verdant Tea around a fire, watch an electric performance by fire dancers and the Women’s Drum Center, and watch the spectacle of the park’s trees come to life with hundreds of lights in shifting colors. These lights will remain on throughout the winter to warm Seward hearts and spirits.

People's Fire Collective

The Lighting Ceremony will be the perfect way to end your day!
