Holiday Fun!

To start with, thank you to all the great women who came out for our Ladies Night on Wednesday, Nov 28th. Your support of American fine art and fine craft is appreciated. I hope you enjoyed the refreshments and a chance to browse and shop without the pressures and chaos of the mall. We enjoyed hosting the event...look for future Ladies Nights events in the future. And I hope all those prize winners make good use of their prizes.

The next upcoming event I am telling everyone I know about is Dickens Festival, Medford Village's Annual Festival on Main Street filled with holiday cheer, Dickensian characters, refreshments, entertainment, shopping and more. It is a fun night out with the kids and a great chance to browse through the wonderful shops along Main Street. There are some unique finds available out there if you take the time to slow down and browse. :) Anyway, I hope you get a chance to come out for the festival and kick off the holiday season right. And one last note about the festival: be sure and look for the Stilt step daughter met him at a concert and he supposedly travels all over the country to do his stilt walking and will be joining us in Medford Village especially for the Dickens Festival. How about that? It's such a great festival we even attract traveling stilt walkers...

Well, regardless of what you decide to do for entertainment, here's to an enjoyable weekend for all...

A brisk wind is blowing through the streets of Medford today but it is toasty warm here at Creative Genius. I am in the process of working on some great upcoming events that we are pretty excited about.
Of course, the first event is our LADIES NIGHT, coming up on November 28th from 6-9pm. We hope you can join us for an evening of fun, prizes, refreshments, a trunk show and a chance to fill out your wish list gift registry, just in time for the holidays. And the best part is that you get to leave the kids at home and come out and socialize with some great local women...
Also coming up on Saturday Dec 1st is Dickens Festival here on Main Street in Medford Village. Enjoy an evening of holiday cheer and come visit us for our annual artist trunk show, featuring 3 artists with additional selections for you to peruse, just in time for holiday shopping.
We are having issues with the Creative Genius website right now but hopefully they will be resolved soon. Don't worry if you can't access it isn't your computer, it is more stuff on the technical end.

This has been a week of introductions, some really great ones and some not so great. I am going to choose to skip any negatives and focus strictly on the positive, very cool happenings here at Creative here goes...
We now carry the incredible work of two very talented wood artists who came to me through a customer recommendation (thank you!) and whose work is incredible. They are Andy DiPietro from Burlington, N J and Philip Hauser from Hainesport. These two gentlemen were not only generous with their showcase of incredible hollow forms as well as natural edge vessels but also with their time. Both were very forthcoming with information about their craft, which is always very exciting to me because I truly love to learn about how all these talented people I work with do what they do. Both are involved with the Delware Valley Turners and you can visit the website for that organization at I think those of you who get a chance to visit and know your fine craft will be impressed by the superior quality work produced by these two men.

Also new on our agenda is a studio/gallery expansion...more information on this new and exciting event coming soon but we should have some new and exciting things to roll out to our clients around mid-January.

I would also like to formally introduce our newest addition to the Creative Genius fold: our new Painting and Drawing teacher, Andrew Pell. Andrew comes highly recommended and we are all excited that he has joined us. Look for him in Children's Drawing and Painting on Wednesdays from 6-7pm and in Adult Drawing & Painting on Wednesdays from 7-9pm. Welcome aboard, Andrew!

Lastly, all you ladies out there need to mark your calendars for what is sure to become a holidays tradition. On Wednesday, Nov 28th we're hosting a ladies night from 6-9pm. It's a great chance to complete your holiday wish list registries, enjoy complimentary refreshments, enter drawings to win prizes and enjoy a jewelry trunk show featuring Michele Grady. We'd love to see you there so get your friends together and plan to be here.

Well, that's all for now...stay tuned for more exciting happenings and at the very least, more blogging from me.
