Silhouettes at Dickens
December 1 | 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM$35
This year, bring home the gift of custom-made art for the holidays!
Patti Rishforth of Heart Paper Scissors will be making hand-cut silhouettes in the lobby of Galveston Arts Center from 10:00am-5:00pm* on Saturday, Dec 1, during Dickens on the Strand™, capturing you or your loved ones’ portrait in profile with just a few snips of her shears.
This economical yet elegant artform was popularized in the 1800’s when photography was not yet common but paintings were costly. Today, framed silhouettes retain a classic, even modern appeal and are often passed down from one generation to the next!
Skip the line: Call to make an appointment: 409-763-2403, Ext. 1004
Silhouettes start at $35 and you get two (R and L)
