Holiday Exhibition

NOVEMBER 14 – DECEMBER 30

Annual ART@HAND Holiday Open House:
Sunday, November 14, 12 – 4 pm, appointments required
Member Preview Hour, 11 am – 12 pm

Make this the season you share your curiosity and clay appreciation with those you love! We’ll have over 1000 pots to use during everyday—or special—moments; from a single mug for quiet morning coffee to a home-office vase for winter greens. Take the time to choose a memorable gift for the friend who didn’t get to see enough of you this year, and give them a reason to smile each time they reach for their new wares!

We can help you choose the perfect present, gift-wrap for you, and even ship!
