Find extraordinary gifts for everyone on your list at Guilford Art Center's annual Holiday Shop. The Shop at Guilford Art Center doubles in size during this time, filling the shop and gallery with extraordinary work from more than 200 American artists, makers and designers. Gift categories include ceramics, pottery, glass, jewelry, homewares, clothing, fiber, ornaments, accessories, toys, specialty foods, stationery, leather goods and more. This year features many new artists, both local and national, as well as new work by established artists. New items are added throughout the course of the show, so visitors will always have fresh shopping experiences every time they visit.
Artistry also offers visitors a variety of shopping experiences: personal shoppers are available for advice and gift-giving ideas; a registry makes gift-selection easy; and businesses can take advantage of personal shoppers and discounts for employee holiday gift-giving.
