Creatively driven and thoughtful gifts will become the focus of Design Studio Art Gallery’s new exhibit “Holiday Gift Exhibit,” which emphasizes buying local. The opening reception will be held on Sunday, December 5, 2010 from 5pm-10pm. The exhibit runs from Monday, November 22, 2010 to Tuesday, December 28, 2010.
The nighttime gala will be celebrated in conjunction with our 2nd anniversary party and our winter holiday party! From 5
pm-10 pm, we will enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in a cozy environment, celebrating local artists and their works
with the warmth and holiday cheer of the season! Offering holiday shoppers new gift-giving ideas, this exhibit focuses on
local artists and artisans. The physical space of the gallery will be transformed into a shopping destination for local residents
to purchase one-of-a-kind pieces.
Items will range from pottery to limited edition photograph prints to handcrafted bowls, jewelry, and more! Essential to the show will be diversity in style, uniqueness in subject matter and originality in items. The goal is to transform the gallery into a unique retail shop for the holiday season that specializes in highlighting our local artists’ community, staging it with the flair that only designers and artists can!
To emphasize purchasing local art as gifts, Design Studio Art Gallery is encouraging submissions that are $50 and under. Ideally, 75% of the gallery will be stocked with art pieces at truly affordable price points to encourage multiple sales and help artists to get their work recognized.
