From traditional holiday presents like greeting cards and ornaments to mixed media artwork and textiles, the galleries offer a wide range of one-of-a-kind artful and thoughtful gifts for friends and family.
All Arts for Gifts’ proceeds serve the mission of the organization, supporting local artists and providing arts education and experiences to all members of the community. Year-round educational programming such as Kids Connect: Art Outdoors, Art in the Park, Saturday Art Lab, and Summer Studio is funded in part by this exceptional holiday event.
