C of I set for Langroise Holiday Arts Fair

The College of Idaho will host the eighth annual Langroise Holiday Arts Fair on Thursday, Dec. 5, from 4:30 to 7 p.m. in the foyer of the Langroise Center for Performing and Fine Arts on the C of I campus in Caldwell. The fair, which is free and open to the public, features artwork created by College of Idaho students, faculty, staff and alumni.

Hand-made items for sale will include paintings, ornaments, candles, jewelry, photography and carved pendants, offered in a wide variety of styles and prices. Several popular local artists will be featured, including watercolor artist Alan Stanford, glass artist and C of I alumnus Agostino Bonaminio and C of I history instructor Dori Johnson, who sells “Accessories by Dori” at the Nampa Farmer’s Market.

The Langroise Holiday Arts Fair provides an opportunity for Treasure Valley art lovers to shop for holiday art and decorations while supporting local students. A percentage of all sales go toward the Kenneth Mann Scholarship fund, which supports art students at The College of Idaho.

Attendance in recent years has numbered in the hundreds, drawing shoppers from all over the Treasure Valley. This year’s fair will be followed by a performance from the C of I Concert Band and Jazz Ensemble at 7:30 p.m. inside Langroise Recital Hall.
