Shop Small!

There are so many reasons to shop locally this holiday season, skipping the malls and "big box" stores. Handmade art is an especially wonderful gift to give, and Gallery artist Norm Gitzen put it best, offering this insight, "When you buy a gift for a loved one from a local artist you are gifting two people at the same time!"

Supporting local art and artists has such a great impact on the arts community from the artists standpoint, as well as the galleries and shops offering locally made art. That is why we are encouraging all our friends and supporters to "Shop Small" this holiday season! This movement has become quite strong and Saturday, November 26th has been designated Small Business Saturday, dedicated to supporting small businesses on one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year.

So please consider your locally owned and operated businesses when plannig your gift-giving this season, and support local arts and artists by shopping SMALL!!! See you in the Gallery...

Thanks go out to Chuck Weber and CBS12 News for featuring CGMS Gallery in a recent piece about the holiday econonomic forcast for Lake Worth. We look forward to a bright and successful holiday season, and hope to share it with all our friends and supporters!!
