Weekend at a Glance
Get into the spirit of the season with festive performances, holiday markets and plays!
By Melanie Vidovich

Visit FRANK Gallery for their Holiday Exhibit Reception, featuring work from FRANK members, guests and new artists. The show highlights gift giving, with pieces coming from a variety of media and price points in order to encourage giving local this holiday season.
Get away from the hustle and bustle of the season, and enjoy the peaceful holiday splendor of the North Carolina Botanical Garden for its Winter in the Garden Holiday Festival, with luminarias, kids’ crafts, music, food and photos with a festive Rameses.
