‘Tis the season!

A different holiday tradition this year.

Traditionally every year we bring you two full weekends, jam-packed with art, in the form of our Holiday Open Studios. This year we moved the experience outside and bring you a special Holiday edition Outdoor Art Market – a fun and safe way to shop this holiday season, while supporting small local businesses. If you’ve been to one of our previous Outdoor Art Markets, know this will be a more intimate and easier to navigate event. This market will have over 30 of our artists and makers vending. You’re bound to find the perfect gift for that special person on your shopping list.

Something for those who can’t join us in person.

We know not everyone can attend our events. This year we’re trying to bring you an option to see what our artists have to offer, from the comfort of your own home. This holiday season we are using our Instagram account to focus on products created by our community, one could call it a Creative Catalog. So regularly tune into our Instagram page to get a glimpse into creative gifts our community of artists and makers have to offer this holiday season. Click here to be taken to our Instagram page. All artists previewed on our feed have online shopping portals to provide you a way to purchase the gifts you’ll see featured.
