Five local artists will display work inside the shop, located on 11312 Manklin Creek Road, Suite 5.

“I wanted to showcase artists from our area because it’s really important that they get known and their work gets promoted,” Dazzle owner Joyce Landsman said. “A couple of the artists I have known for quite a while when I had my other gift shop in Berlin, and I wanted to make sure that they did get the recognition they deserve.”

Watercolor and pen and ink artist Jim Adcock will display work as well as provide a demonstration during art night. Additional artists to be featured are jewelry designer Marcia Cupschaulk, painter/cartographer Myrna McGrath, muralist Dot Parks and painter Beverly Wisch.

“Each one does a different type of medium,” Landsman said. “Dot does acrylic and plein air, gorgeous work, Bev does watercolors, Marcia does jewelry and Myrna McGrath is very well known for her maps, and her watercolors are gorgeous.”

What makes Dazzle’s arts night different from other happenings, Landsman said, is that several of the artists will be working on new projects during the event.

“Most of them will be painting, or doing what they do. Three of them at least will be working on pieces of art,” Landsman said. “I hope everyone gets an appreciation for the arts and is able to see what each artist does and how the end result comes out.”
