"Our annual Holiday Boutique is the opportunity East End Arts provides its members (or anyone who becomes a member) to feature their talent and skill in the making of one-of-a-kind items designed to be given as special gifts," noted Jane Kirkwood, East End Arts Gallery Director. "The items will include jewelry, art wear, greeting cards, ornaments, floral arrangements, fiber art, baby clothes and on and on." Visitors know that they're supporting locals while purchasing a product that is a truly special gift. "From the response we've had in past years, we know there is an East End consumer who loves the idea of giving these unique holiday gifts made by the amazing artists of eastern Long Island," added Kirkwood.

Artists interested in being a part of the holiday season magic must submit an online application by 5 p.m. on Thursday, October 20th. Following application review and acceptance, artists will be notified and scheduled for in-person inventory drop-off appointment which will be scheduled between Wednesday, November 2nd and Saturday, November 5th. Artists must be or become members of East End Arts to participate.
