Do you have plans for Friday, Oct. 12?
To build excitement for the show, Cranberry Patch is featuring a different local artist on the site each day leading up to the opening night.
“Poppy,” an original watercolor by Mary Alice Carmody-Diana, also will be raffled off at the event. Attendees must be present to win the artwork, which will be on display at the Patch table.
Today, we feature a profile on William Perry, whose pieces “Nine on Penn” and “Herefords” will be on display at the show.
