Oak Ridge Art Center: Gallery of Holiday Shops

Category: Exhibitions, visual art, Fine Crafts and Free event

A Week of Delights! Due to the unrivaled success of Gallery of Holiday Shops in the past two years, we will host the event for a full week again, making it a week of delights!
Gallery of Holiday Shops will be run from Saturday, December 3 through Saturday, December 10 from 9 to 4 pm each day. We will have some artists and several volunteers here to help you make purchases and package your items. As in the past, we will have one cashier area so each shopper need only make one purchase and will not have to carry all the merchandise around as you shop all the booths. We suggest you make reservations to come to the show when you prefer, but will take walk-ins when, and if, numbers in the building will allow. This annual event offers guests an opportunity to access one-of-a-kind creations by regional artists and artisans in a variety of media. We hope this coincides with the need of members of our community to find beautiful, meaningful items for their loved ones for the holidays in a safe environment.

There is never an admission fee, and proceeds from the artists’ sales will benefit both the artists and the Art Center. Shopping local is a great way to support regional artists, the Art Center, and our local economy.
