NARRAGANSETT– 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 Loon’s Nina Briggs and Susan Letendre Imports, Maxwell’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 Narragansett’s historic homes by renowned architects McKim, Mead and White.
“Since 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,” Maxwell said in a recent interview. “Thirty years ago we had an open house during the holiday season which we repeated for several years.” Last year the tradition was revived.
