The Art of Giving

Welcome to the season of holiday shopping madness...can't believe it's December already! Lucky for you, the Gallery is ready to rescue you from the Mall. Join us this Friday, December 3, for the Art of Giving. Gallery artists will be on hand to help you choose, or create, a truly one-of-a-kind gift of hand made art for yourself, or someone special. We're encouraging everyone to have a "Hand-made Holiday" this year, and skip mass produced items from overseas. Instead, why not support art and local artists? The selection in the Gallery is mind-boggling. Everything from sculpted metal dinosaurs to fine porcelain and jewelry. How about a Peace menorah? Or perhaps a fused glass platter? We have something for everyone on your list, I guarantee it!

So, come to the Gallery this Friday for a glass of wine, some great music from the Pick it Sisters, and a wonderful, unique shopping experience. See you at 6:00!!

Show Your Support...

This Friday, Nov 12, will be very special at the Gallery. We will we be hosting a cocktail party for the Sister Cities Project of Lake Worth, featuring the wonderful art of the children of Jacmel, Haiti. Sales proceeds support Haitian relief efforts. Now, more than ever we need to support our Island friends, who are battling the devestating effects of the earthquake, followed by storm damage and cripling health issues. Please join us at 5:30 to support this worthy effort and to meet representatives from Lake Worth's Sister Cities Project. See you there!
