I think about December as an opportunity for nonstop gift giving. My interpretation of gift giving might be non-traditional and even unorthodox. For me, a simple act of kindness – whether a gesture or a pretty package tied with a bow – is a gift.
You can treat yourself to an array of gifts at the Woodson Art Museum throughout the month, beginning tomorrow evening, December 1, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., at Celebrate Woodturning.
It’s an opportunity to view the new exhibitions, Boxes and Their Makers and Think Inside the Box and to meet members of the Wisconsin Valley Woodturners. The terrifically creative and inventive works of these local woodworkers make up Think Inside the Box.
In addition, the Wausau West Master Singers perform at 6:00 and 6:30 tomorrow evening. There will be opportunities for hands-on art, too. You can decorate a provided box that will prove just the thing for holiday gift giving.
And so the month begins. I’m certain that I’ll be both a gift giver and a recipient each day throughout December. Whether it’s a smile and a nod to Museum visitors or a handcrafted or purchased gift, there are unlimited ways to embrace and share the spirit of the holidays.
