Starting Monday, Feb. 1, Monroe-Walton Center for the Arts pottery instructor, Rebecca Braswell, is inviting the community to get in on a Gnome Hunt around the city.
“You will have these clear balls hidden around town with a ticket inside. Find one and bring in to MWCA and you will win an adorable pottery gnome – handmade by Rebecca and a few of her students,” MWCA announced.
Braswell will hide 10 clear plastic balls with numbered tickets each week in February. At MWCA they will have corresponding gnomes and the finder will be able to go home with the gnome that matches your ticket.
Limit: *one* gnome per household — so everyone has fun looking and finding! If you bring in more than one, they will only honor one ticket in the interest of giving others have a chance. You are also asked to contribute the plastic ball back to the center in order for them to keep the hunt going.
You can bring your ticket to MWCA during open hours, which are Tuesday – Thursday from 11 – 4 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10 – 5. While you’re there you can check out the Artists Market Gift Shop, Members’ Show in the gallery and pick up a class list. There are also some other gnomes in the shop, available for purchase for $12.
