Oak Ridge Art Center: Gallery of Holiday Shops

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

Gallery of Holiday Shops is open and waiting for you to join us. Wonderful original creations fill every booth for you to peruse and enjoy! We hope your holiday season is off to a great start and that you will join us to finish (or start) your shopping. It is a beautiful show! Come by any, or every, day between 9 Am and 4 PM from December 4 through 11. Hope to see you here!

There is no admission fee, and proceeds from the artists’ sales will benefit both the artists and the Art Center.

Exhibitors in 2021 represent a wide variety of unique items to beautify one’s own space or for gifting in the holiday season. We are fortunate to have several returning favorites (Capshaw, Prince, Loosli, Redd, Ferrara, Zucker, Lankford, etc.) as well as newer vendors (Bills, Fisher, Edkins, Sullentrup, etc.) to titillate your mind and add new flair to your gifting ideas. For those who are looking for truly one-of-a-kind options, this is your opportunity to find beautiful items for holiday gifts and shop in relative safety since we are limiting the number of individuals in the building at any one time, requesting masks, practicing social distancing, and cleaning often touched communal objects frequently.
