NARRAGANSETTâ€“ This weekend, local artist Joya Maxwell will open her heart and home for the second annual Holiday Faire on Kentara Green in Narragansett. In collaboration with The Splendid Loonâ€™s Nina Briggs and Susan Letendre Imports, Maxwellâ€™s two day event will offer an intimate holiday shopping experience with one-of-a-kind gifts for the art lover.
The open house will feature a unique assortment of fine art, ceramic bead necklaces, porcelain and silver pendants, whimsical holiday pins, and fair-trade goods including stained glass jewelry and hand weavings from the indigenous people of Guatemala and Mexico. The venue will provide visitors an opportunity to experience one of Narragansettâ€™s historic homes by renowned architects McKim, Mead and White.
â€śSince we moved here thirty-five years ago, our home has had an element of being open to public, bringing a life force of sharing into the house,â€ť Maxwell said in a recent interview. â€śThirty years ago we had an open house during the holiday season which we repeated for several years.â€ť Last year the tradition was revived.
