Each November, the gallery of Blue Ridge Arts Council is transformed into a holiday wonderland. Deck the Halls has proven to be a tremendous success over the past 16 years. Hundreds of volunteers participate in this event each year by artistically decorating artificial trees and wreaths inspired by clever themes such as “Owl Be Home for Christmas” and “Silver Splendor.” Last year we had over 100 items, including trees, wreaths, and silent auction baskets netting over $14,000 for our programs. Deck the Halls is a major fundraising event for Blue Ridge Arts Council. We appreciate your generous support and hope you will help us continue this cherished holiday tradition!
