A heartwarming holiday exhibit that features handmade Christmas Carolers designed by Joyce Byers of Byers’ Choice Ltd., the internationally-known collectible figurine business located in Chalfont, has opened in Montgomery County Community College‘s North Hall Art Gallery, 16 High St., Pottstown.
A “Meet the Artist” afternoon reception with Byers is planned for tomorrow, Sunday, Nov. 13 from 1 to 3 p.m. Christmas Caroler figures are displayed throughout the gallery in vignettes that include Victorian themes as well as telling the story of Scrooge and The Twelve Days of Christmas. Each unique figure is created with an upturned face – mouth open in song.
The exhibit, “Handcrafting Christmas Tradition In Our Community,” continues through Dec. 16 during regular gallery hours, Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., and Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The gallery is closed weekends, except for Nov. 13. Both the exhibit and receptions are free and open to the public.
