For the second year in a row, Sunset River Marketplace in Calabash, N.C. is holding its hugely popular Creativity Unleashed event on Saturday, March 19 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Gallery owner Ginny Lassiter said, “Last year, our one-day Creativity Unleashed event was very successful. The community came out and really enjoyed watching the artists work, meeting them and enjoying live music. So this time we wanted to push the envelope even further.”
New this year, the eclectic gallery is expanding the event to feature a month-long exhibition of works that celebrate outside-the-box thinking and creativity. The show opens on March 1 and runs through April 2. Artists include Marty Allran (clay), Ginny Lassiter (acrylic), Mona Bendin (fabric), Ann McCray (oil), Linda Young (pastel), Ann Cunningham (metal), Celia Wester (oil), and Jim Comer (wood).
