5th Annual Lamplight Wreath Exhibit

January 8, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Sunday, November 27 – Sunday, January 8, 2016
On Sunday, November 27th Sycamore Shoals welcomes the Watauga Valley Art League for the annual December art show.  The exhibit area is decorated with lamp posts with welcoming wreathes hanging from them that are created by organizations from throughout our local communities.
The art show and wreath exhibit is viewed over the holiday season by thousands of visitors to Sycamore Shoals State Historic Park and is highly complimented by the park guests.
We would like to invite your community organization to make and display a wreath during this event.  This year’s theme is “Christmas Carols,” providing creative opportunities for the artist in you to interpret your favorite carol!
Wreathes can be made from grapevine, wire, and various purchased forms and can be decorated with artificial plant material, ornaments, pine cones, ribbons, or anything that you feel creates beauty and will hold its form indoors.   We ask that you don’t use live greenery.
For additional information and an application to participate in the annual Lamplight Wreath Exhibit, please call the park at 423-543-5808 and ask for Ms. Johnnie Pilk or request an application.  Wreathes need to be brought to the park no later than Tuesday, November 22, 2016.
