PMAC presents Skytop Holiday Arts Festival The Pocono Mountain Arts Council (PMAC) will present the Ninth Annual Skytop Holiday Arts Festival on Saturday, November 30 and Sunday, December 1 at the Executive Conference Center at Skytop Lodge. The tranquil, elegant venue is a delightful place for visitors to begin holiday shopping. More than 50 display booths will showcase the work of the local arts community, with artists standing by to present and discuss their hand-crafted wares. This year’s featured items include functional and artistic pottery, wood-turned pieces, furniture and functional wood accessories, fused and stained glass, jewelry in a variety of styles, handmade bags, totes and satchels, and hand-painted silks. The fine arts will be represented by photographers working in traditional and digitally-enhanced modes, and by painters whose work ranges over a wide variety of styles and mediums including watercolor, oils, acrylics and pastels. The Skytop Holiday Arts Festival will again showcase the artwork of area students. Exhibiting this year will be the Pocono Homeschoolers and students of the Evergreen School in Cresco, PA. Pocono Mountain West High School student Rocio Saavedra will be featured in this year’s Emerging Artist category. The Ninth Annual Skytop Holiday Arts Festival will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 30, and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, December 1.
