LAWRENCE, KS—The Ladies of Lawrence Artwork (LOLA) art cooperative will wrap up their sixth year of local art shows with a two-day arts and crafts sale, known as LOLA GIANT, on December 11-12. This Saturday through Sunday event will be held at the Van Go Mobile Arts gallery at 715 New Jersey and will feature over 25 local artists with items ranging from jewelry, clothing and pet accessories to stationery, sock monkeys and soaps.
While most LOLA events are held with a limited number of artists and space, LOLA GIANT is a much larger, comprehensive shopping experience. Designed for holiday shoppers, this event will feature a coat check and gift wrapping booth benefitting Van Go, delicious fairly traded coffee donated by The Bourgeois Pig, and live DJ services, compliments of Love Garden Sounds.
LOLA events feature the handiwork of Lawrence women and provide an intimate boutique-style shopping experience where visitors can browse and interact with the creators themselves. LOLA shows are organized by the participants and hosted by generous Lawrence businesses that support local artists and crafters.
Last year’s LOLA GIANT brought in nearly 500 shoppers in one day! The December 11-12 show will offer more merchandise and more time for shoppers. It is also an opportunity to show support for Lawrence’s unique and lively art scene.
