Holidays bring out the creativity in many folks, and now everyone has the chance to see if they have the right stuff to design an ornament to hang on the Christmas tree at the Governor’s Mansion.
First Lady Joanne Tomblin is encouraging West Virginia artists to create and submit ornaments to be displayed on the Governor's Mansion Holiday Tree as part of the Third Annual Artistree Project.
Submitted ornaments will be featured in the 2013 Artistree Catalog. Participating artists will be invited to a special celebration at the Governor's Mansion.
"The Artistree has become a winter tradition and an important part of our holiday celebrations," Tomblin said in a news release. "Its ornaments are a reflection of our state's culture and history, showcasing the talent of artists from across West Virginia."
The Artistree will be unveiled in conjunction with Joyful Night, the annual holiday celebration at the state Capitol complex, which will be held Dec. 3.
For more information, contact the Governor's Mansion at 304-558-3588.
