AHA Holiday Art Festival.......Joyce Oroz

Holiday Art Festival

Of all the events in Aromas, my favorite is the annual Holiday Art Festival, 
Saturday, November 21st and Sunday November 22nd. What a wonderful 
way to spend a day in the newly refurbished Aromas Grange, by the fire, 
sipping hot cider, surrounded by artwork. This year the Aromas Hills Artisans 
are going beyond just baked goods and hot drinks, all the way to lunch.
Moving on from the fireplace and food, visitors will have opportunities 
to learn a craft and make something wonderful to take home. Christine West 
will offer instruction on making multi-layered cards, Diedra Kmetovic will 
demonstrate making an easy scarf or God’s eye ornament and Andrea McCann 
will show us how to make cards with relief printing. Kay will offer guidance 
in painting with wax to make greeting cards. They are so beautiful!
Back to the main event, the Aroma Grange has a large room that will be 
chock full of booths loaded with original art such as wood carvings, embroidery, 
silver jewelry, fused glass, stained glass, pottery, succulents, garden art, quilts, 
paintings, photography, greeting cards, handmade Christmas ornaments and 
fabric gifts and local authors selling their books. My latest book in the Josephine 
Stuart Mystery Series will be available at a special Holiday price. Debra Smith 
will be signing her wonderful teen fantasy books. 
As if that’s not enough, tickets 
for the raffle will be on sale until 
Sunday at 2:00. 
The prizes are wonderful pieces 
of art donated by the Aromas Hills 
It is an amazing collection of paintings, 
pottery, carved wood, jewelry and 
much more.
This is a festival you won’t want to miss. 
The lovely little town of Aromas 
is located just off  highway 129, 
halfway between Watsonville and 
highway 101. 
While you’re in town, check out the six AHA murals. One of them is new this year. 
I’ll give you a hint—it’s at the library. See you there!
