[caption id="attachment_368" align="alignleft" width="306" caption="Bollingers 2011 Artist Series Ornaments (From Left to Right) - Back Seat Driver, Commander and Chief, and Christmas Delivery "][/caption] Christmas in July continues Saturday July 16th as two master artisans, world renowned artist Richard Bollinger and Wendell August's own master die engraver Len Youngo, will be visiting shoppers at our Exton Showroom. During your visit, you'll have the opportunity to take home 3 new releases from the Artist Series Ornaments which feature Bollinger's canvas mastery forever preserved in Wendell August hand-hammered metal. The first of these ornaments is "Back Seat Driver" which is a lighthearted approach to the sleigh and “driver” in the first deep snowfall, contrasted with the natural beauty of a Pennsylvania winter. "Commander In Chief" is deep in American roots with a historic winter scene at Valley Forge. Captured is George Washington’s Headquarters. From here, Washington organized and orchestrated the plans for the entire army from the winter of 1777 to the spring of 1778. Also in the release is "Christmas Delivery". This particular delivery seemed to last long enough for the snowfall to cover the fieldstone fencing and arching pine, capturing the enchantment of the holiday season. If getting these ornaments home wasn't reason enough, there is plenty of other reasons to bring the whole family to this event: - In-store demonstrations from Youngo and Bollinger from 11-1 PM and 2-4 PM Youngo - Youngo and Bollinger will be signing your favorite Wendell August pieces including the 2011 Annual Plate "Running Mates" - Refreshments for all and raffles for the kids - Kids can use the very same Wendell August hand-hammering process to make their own piece and take it home - Chance to see the newly remodeled Exton Jewelry Studio where you can see the design of our next jewelry pieces being conceived in real-time! This is going to be a lot of fun, and we are excited to welcome you in, and out of the heat. To get directions, click here. We hope to see you there!
