To kick off the holiday season, a group of art studios, galleries and gift shop in the Cranberry Bog area of Manitowish Waters announced the third annual “Art in the Bog” Holiday Tour, Dec. 6-8, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The tour features eight artists in five studios, plus the Cranberry Square Gift Shop.
Studios will be dressed up for the holidays, refreshments will be served and visitors can complete a “passport” card for prize drawings. Original artwork, pottery, photography, special gifts and handwork will be featured, and at the Cranberry Square Gift Shop visitors can sample wine, find unique home décor, snacks and more.
The Art in the Bog Holiday Tour is just one of several reasons to come to Manitowish Waters on the weekend. “Christmas for the Town” is on Dec. 6, and the annual Lioness Holiday Home Tour is on Dec. 7. One of the Art in the Bog studios, Sandra Cashman Oil Paintings, is also featured on the Lioness Holiday Home Tour.
A complete list of Art in the Bog locations can be found on the ManitowishWaters.org events calendar, or on the Art in the Bog Facebook page. Signs will be placed along Alder Lake Road for easy identification.
