The Palette & The Page 10th Anniversary Celebration

The November 9, 2019 Birthday Celebration features live music from two singer/songwriters, refreshments, and the opportunity to enter some raffle drawings.
The door to The Palette & The Page opened for the first time on Monday, November 9, 2009. Ten years later on Saturday, November 9th the community is invited to celebrate the Gallery’s 10th anniversary. It is only with the support of the people of the community that the Gallery has continued to serve in Downtown Elkton for 10 years. Opening at 10am the party will welcome Em McKeever to share her music from 10am-1pm, Box Turtle Bob from 1pm-3pm – both adding to the festivities as singer/songwriters who have been a part of the First Friday musical offerings almost since the beginning.
Every attendee will be entered in an hourly raffle which will give them the opportunity to win a piece of art generously gifted by one of the Gallery’s artists to help celebrate the 10th anniversary of The Palette & The Page. Additionally, when customers bring in a receipt dated 11/9/19 from any other Downtown Elkton merchant during the open hours of November 9th, another raffle ticket will be awarded.
Following the Gallery closing at 4pm, all are invited to Elk River Brewing Company for games and to enjoy the beer tapped in honor of The Palette & The Page’s 10th Birthday. Make sure to bring a game to enjoy!

Write Your Way to a Better Body Image Workshop

All relationships start with the relationship you have with yourself. You already have a relationship with yourself, but if you’re like the 91% of adult women who are unhappy with their bodies, this relationship is not usually positive and nurturing. In this writing workshop you’ll use visualization and guided imagery to create a better relationship with not only yourself, but specifically your body. Using creative writing exercises you’ll be liberated from the lie of body perfection and explore where you lost your positive-body connection in the first place. You’ll get permission to see your body as perfect as it is and leave with tools to continue creating a more positive body-image. No writing experience necessary, just a desire to feel good about who you are.
