If you are still looking for the perfect gift, you owe it to yourself to consider a hand-crafted gift this Christmas. Hand-crafted gifts are as unique and special as the lucky person on your list who receives one. Whether it is jewelry, pottery, hand-carved wood, fused glass, paintings or photography, our artists have put their special touch on unique one-of-a-kind gifts you will be excited about.
We have decorative and functional pottery – trays, coffee mugs, bowls, vases, and platters priced from $8 to $90. You can pick a decorative piece to enhance the home or pick a functional piece to make an everyday meal a bit more special. There are even pieces that do both.
You can select a piece of custom jewelry from one of our seven jewelry artists. They have crafted everything from simple beadwork to hammered metal to fused glass. Prices are very affordable and range from $5 to $70.
Our paintings, prints and photography reflect both local flavor and favorite destinations. You may find a memory here that you shared with a friend – captured in print – that would make a great gift.
And the list goes on. We have local honey, hand-made soaps and lotions, carved wood, dreamcatchers, stained glass hand-painted stemware, hand-painted scarves, and more. All thoughtful gifts that you won’t find in a big box store.
So stop by and finish your Christmas shopping with us.
Our annual Holiday Craft Show is underway, bringing you a broad selection of unique, local handmade items from our crafters. Their work is always a great addition to the regular artists’ work in the gallery, and we are sure you will find something for your home or for someone on your Christmas list.
We have many of our favorite crafters back this year including Earl Almond with his delicious jams and jellies, Karen Wright with her beautiful pottery and First Oak Studios with their felt hats and crochets items. Dawn Hopkins is back with her gorgeous quilts and table runners.
We also have some new and exciting faces this year. Dorothy Gibson is bringing in quilling work where she uses small strips of paper to create fantastic designs.
Yolanda Grigg has brought in some fabulous jewelry in a wide variety of styles and colors.
And Megan Clavey has brought in household items made from wine corks, as well as cord-wrapped bottles.
We also have some of our regular gallery members who have brought in extra work for the holidays. Nancy Lipe, Vicky Galloway, Lorrie Hatley, Sue Davis and Harley Pinto-Williams all have Christmas-themed work in the craft show along with their art that is in the gallery.
Like all handmade items, many of the best items are custom, one-of-a-kind pieces, and the early shoppers get the best selection. Plan your trip to the gallery now. In addition to our regular hours, we will be open for Downtown Christmas on Friday November 18th and will be open late on November 28th for the Downtown Christmas Stroll. We will also be open Mondays between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
