Annual Georgetown holiday sale draws a festive shopping crowd

A steady stream of eager shoppers turned out for Georgetown's annual artwalk and holiday sale, held on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 3-4, along Airport Way South . Above, patrons browse the creations in one of the dozens of galleries that have flourished in recent years in the historic neighborhood's formerly industrialized business core. At left, painter, muralist and sculptor Nancy "Stevie" Peacock holds up a painting of hers for a prospective buyer to get a better look.

While the holiday-inspired affair is a big draw for the Georgetown area, the neighborhood's artists host a monthly artwalk typically held on the first weekend of the month as well as special events like the Dec. 10 Art Sale of Georgetown and South Park at 8201 10th Ave. S. in South Park from 4:30-10 p.m. The event will feature work from Georgetown artists less than $100. A good way to keep in touch with the goings on in the diverse Georgetown arts community is through the neighborhood's website,[[In-content Ad]]
