Take time to feed your spir­it and check out the new exhib­it, the ART OF GIVING hol­i­day show, at the gallery.

Each hol­i­day sea­son the mem­bers of the Hills­bor­ough Gallery of Arts trans­form the gallery to show­case orig­i­nal orna­ments and hand-made gifts. The gallery’s 22 mem­bers work in a vari­ety of media, pro­vid­ing a wide array of fine art and fine craft for hol­i­day shop­pers. The glass art includes hand-blown ves­sels, orna­ments, solar lights, paper­weights, and jew­el­ry by our two glass artists, Pringle Tee­tor and Susan Hope. Fiber art on dis­play includes framed fab­ric col­lages, hand-dyed scarves and hand dyed stitched cloth by Ali Givens and Alice Levin­son. The jew­el­ry in the show cov­ers a vari­ety of styles and tech­niques, from cop­per and bronze to Ari­an­na Bara’s and Nell Chandler’s ster­ling and fine sil­ver neck­laces, ear­rings, bracelets and rings, some with gold accents and stones. Vis­i­tors will also find met­al sculp­ture by Jason Smith and Jude Lobe’s cop­per sculp­tures of Shamans and Zuni Bears. Lynn Wartski’s hand­made art dolls, Gar­ry Child’s and Eve­lyn Ward’s pot­tery, Micheal Salemi’s turned wood, and carved iron­wood with turquoise and sil­ver inlay by Lar­ry Favoritie. Eric Saun­ders’ Fine art pho­tog­ra­phy as well as Jude Lobe’s encaus­tic and cold wax paint­ings, Lin­da Carmel tex­tured paint­ings, Eduar­do Lapetina’s explo­sions of col­or and our visu­al artists’ Pat Mer­ri­man, Lolette Guthrie, Mar­cy Lans­man, Michele Yellin, Chris Graeb­n­er, oil and acrylic paint­ings, scratch­boards, and mixed media works that  fes­tive­ly sur­round the three dimen­sion­al pieces on pedestals.

Come explore the won­der­ful art exhib­it­ed at the Hills­bor­ough Gallery of Arts; you will find a per­fect gift for that spe­cial per­son. And if you are stumped as to what to choose, we also have gift cer­tifi­cates avail­able.
