At each of the six participating locations attendees can receive a passport for the annual event. After each visit, the passport is stamped, enabling the attendee to become eligible for a drawing of gift baskets from each of the venues: The Green Boutique, Orange Home Accessories, Pottery Patch, Beaux Arts Gallery, Sketch and Sip, The Bead Boutique and Center Place.
The drawing for those baskets is set to be held tonight at Center Place, which also is the venue for the 2013 Artworks Open Show and awards ceremony.
