Roberson, perhaps best known for his striking camellia paintings, as well as landscapes and seascapes, is one of well over a dozen artists who will be displaying their work during the show.

Impressionist Elizabeth Reid; Cindy Leutzinger, art photographer, portraitist Etheridge James Hall and several other outstanding professional and amateur artists will display paintings in oil, acrylics, watercolor, mixed media and fine art photography as part of the art show.

“We are looking forward to a great weekend. There will be a lot of beautiful artwork and on Sunday, we will also be offering refreshments to our visitors,” Roberson said.

“Give a unique gift this year – the work of one of our talented local artists.”

Christmas Art Show hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 22 and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 23.
