Created by local artists and Art Presence members, all works will fall within the range of  4″ x 6″ to 10″ x 14″ for the perfect little package that will make their eyes shine!

The show opens November 7 and continues through December 28, with two receptions, the first on Saturday, November 8 from 12–3pm and the second on Saturday, December 6 from 12–3pm after the Jacksonville Christmas Parade. Come meet the artists and shop for one of a kind artistic treasures created by local talent from paintings and ornaments to sculptures.

We are adding an Artist Gift Shop to the front room of our gallery in November! Artists will provide cards, ornaments and small gifts in the shop to add dimension to our offerings and options for  your Christmas gift giving list. Felted wool figures, elegant wooden rattles, and handcrafted wooden trinket boxes like this one by new member Bruce Millbank are just one example of the small treasures you will find in our new gift shop!

We will also be open during the Jacksonville Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on November 28, 2014. We will add more details to this post as they become available.
