Holiday Boutique - It's Happening Here!

It's happening here! It's almost happening now!

Our annual Holiday Boutique officially opens on Friday, November 28, at 11 a.m.

Avoid the crowded malls and major retailers, and instead shop in the friendly atmosphere of Art On Broadway gallery. Our boutique offers many wonderful items for gift giving  -  all designed and crafted by local artists!

In addition to our member artists, we have invited 15 guest artists to exhibit and sell their creations in our gallery through December 27.

Choose from fine jewelry by Debra Carus and Serena Van Vlaken; fabric scarves, purses, throws, jackets and labyrinths from Patti Isaacs, Judilee Fitzhugh, Bonnie Garlington, Deborah Hilleary, and Melinda Paterson; painted hosiery by Donna Joslyn; quilted table runners, tea wallets, and tea cozies by Claudia McCarter and Deb Messina; metal bird sculptures by Joe Pogan; encaustic cards, gift tags, tote bags, and mini paintings by Virginia Parks; ceramic sculptures, pots, and wall hangings by Barbara Hilleary and Angela Neiwert; and holiday wreaths by Barb Hunter.

Gifts from our gallery are unique, memorable, and of the highest quality. Shop once, shop often, plus come to our December 6 Holiday Reception from 6 to 9 p.m. - wine and refreshments, and great conversation with the artists.

Small Boxes Beaverton - November 29 thru December 5

Art On Broadway is happy to be a part of this new event in the historic district of Beaverton's downtown. Eleven retail businesses, all within walking distance of one another, have joined together to launch a "passport" event for this holiday season. Pick up your passport for Small Boxes Beaverton at any of the shops, walk away with a free promotion from each of the shops you visit, and enter to win a drawing at each location for an in-store prize worth $25. If you visit all eleven stores and get your passport stamped, you will be eligible to win one of eleven $50 gift certificates or a grand prize basket filled with treasures and gifts.
Small Boxes Beaverton opens on Saturday, November 29 and continues through Friday night, December 5. Participating  businesses include Beaverton Bakery, Beaverton Kia, Copper Creations Gallery, Costume Avenue, Peddler's Pack, Peonies & Possibilities, Quilter's Corner Store, Rose City Modern, Sublimity Snow & Skateboards, and The Vault Vintage Clothing - in addition to Art On Broadway.
Lots of prizes, lots of special promotions, and a very fun shopping experience without the hectic pace and bustle of mall shopping.
In addition, if you have an American Express credit card, you can earn a $10 credit for a $10 charge to your AmEx card. Shop at three stores that accept American Express, which Art On Broadway does, and get a $10 credit at each from AmEx - up to $30.  Many of the other businesses participating in this event also accept American Express.
Keep in mind that our annual Holiday Boutique will be up and running during this event. For more information on the boutique, read my Holiday Boutique posting.
Of course, we'll have all the fabulous work by our members on the walls, in the windows, and poised on our pedestals. Be good to yourself - shop local and shop Small Boxes Beaverton.

October Demo - Oil Painting by Nancy Cuevas

Nancy did a wonderful oil painting demonstration in October. She set up a fall still life arrangement and wowed her audience by almost completing the piece in less than two hours.

Artist demos at the gallery are free - it's a great way to see at artist at work. We hope you'll join us at a future art demonstration. Look for postings on the Current Events section of our Website.
