Give a Gift of Art

Having a hard time deciding what to give to those on your list this year?

May I suggest you consider a piece of original artwork. It won't be duplicated, it doesn't need batteries, and it won't put on pounds or cause dietary problems. Giving a gift created by the hands and heart of an artist seems more meaningful, more thoughtful, more personal.

We have added some small gift items to our collection of artwork at this time of year - more jewelry by Heather John, small metal tree luminaries by Angela Ridgway, felted wool wine bags and pouches by Patricia Rehm, fused glass photo holders, ornaments and holiday glassware by Rae Campbell, 2018 art calendars by Gretha Lindwood, a book of art photos/poetry by Russell J Young, and mini paintings by Linda Baker, Nancy Cuevas, Virginia Parks, and me, Donna Sanson. Most of these items are very reasonably priced and would make wonderful gifts for teachers, hostess gifts, co-worker gift exchanges, etc.

Glass Photo Frames $10 each

Felted Wool Wine Bags & Pouches

Fine Art Quilt by Elizabeth Bamberger/Mini Oil Paintings by Nancy Cuevas

When couples don't know what to get each other, a great solution might be to visit the gallery together and select a piece of artwork that both find exciting. It can be the beginning of your collection of original art or it can be an addition to your current personal art galley at home or work.

If you're contributing to a group gift along with a number of friends, family members or coworkers, once again consider a piece of artwork that the recipient will remember and appreciate for years. This beautiful watercolor by Mary Burgess is priced at $200 and currently is part of our featured show for November and December.

The fine art quilt by Elizabeth Bamberger or any of the cat themed mini oil paintings by Nancy Cuevas would warm the heart of anyone who receives such a gift. Or we have an equisite selection of glass clocks, platters, dishes, and bowls by Jim Scheller, Rae Campbell, and Vicki Green that are both functional and decorative and would make memorable gifts to be handed down for generations to come.

Come by Tuesday thru Sunday, 11 to 5, and allow us to help you select the perfect art gift for those on your shopping list. Don't forget to attend the December 9 drawing/watercolor demonstration by Mary Burgess - 5 to 8 p.m. Refreshments by member artists and music by Bob Ewing.

The spirit of the holidays is alive and well at Art On Broadway Gallery.
