The East End Arts
Gallery is currently looking for artists and artisans to be featured in its upcoming Holiday Gift Boutique.
"The concept behind our Holiday Gift Boutique is that all of our vendors are artists who design and hand make each one-of-a-kind item," shared East End Arts Gallery
Director Jane Kirkwood. "From gorgeous, hand painted ornaments that will be passed down from generation to generation, to dichroic glass nail files or exquisite one-of-a-kind jewelry made out of woven strips of citrus peel or tagua seed bracelets dyed and burnished to look and feel like Bakelite only so much lighter, adorable baby outfits so contemporary and charming and each completely hand knit (yet amazingly machine washable!), and on and on."
The Gallery is holding an open call in search of unique, one-of-a-kind artists' works and items to showcase during the annual holiday season sales event. Starting on Saturday, November 14th through Wednesday, December 23rd, East End Arts' three galleries will be decorated from top to bottom with the beautiful creations of local vendors, which will be on display for shoppers from across Long Island to purchase.
"If you're looking for extraordinarily unique and very special gifts from the highly creative minds of our talented member artists, you really should check out The East End Arts Holiday Gift Boutique before you shop anywhere else," noted Kirkwood.
