Join us to begin the Holiday Season with our annual Holiday Open House on Friday, November 24 and Saturday, November 25 with hours 10 to 5 each day. We would like to see everyone and enjoy a cup of cider or tea, along with holiday treats and community spirit.

The Holiday Open House begins our 41st Winter Group and Small Works Exhibition. Many new small paintings in various styles, subject matter, and techniques are presented by Andrew Braitman, Nancy Brittelle, Monique Carr, Mary Kamerer, Jean Rupprecht, Lisa Boardwine, Linda Apriletti, Leigh Williams, and Nicholas Stewart, along with guest artist, Cindy Shaw.

Snowy landscapes in oil and pastel by Kevin Beck; local vistas and streams with snowy banks by Kim Abernethy, and Egidio Antonaccio in oil, along with watercolor depicting the beauty of winter by Freeman Beard are some of the exquisite artworks in this exhibition.

Functional pottery, which is hand built, hand painted in vases, mugs, trays, spoon rests, butter dishes, sugar/creamer, salt/pepper, bowls and more by Molly Lithgo, Jim Rientjes, and Tena Wenta just arrived and are great for holiday and hostess gifts.

New jewelry by Tana Acton in silver and gold-filled wrapped cuffs and rings with gemstones and pearls make lovely stocking stuffers. This Exhibition has a nice collection of Small Works our artists created especially for the Holidays.

We are looking forward to seeing you in the gallery as we begin this wonderful season of Love and Light.
