December at Sutter Creek Gallery: "Joyful Celebration"

For December, Sutter Creek Gallery is mounting a two-pronged membership show:  “Joyful Celebration” will feature holiday and winter scenes as well as affordable art gifts under $50, with many well under that price. The holidays are not that far away.  So instead of the usual sweater for Dad, or a blender for Mom, or box of candy for Aunt June, why not choose something unique at a reasonable price?

Since this is a group show, items from all of the gallery members will be highlighted: Paintings large and small in acrylics, watercolors, pastels, encaustics and oils. Collages and mixed media pieces from teeny-tiny to sizable.  Photographs, fabric wall hangings, hand painted glassware, ceramics, gourds, sculptures, and so much more.  Many of the artists offer prints and cards as well as small original artwork.  Sutter Creek Gallery is the place to shop for the holidays and beyond.

You are invited to the reception opening this show on Saturday, December 2, starting at 2 p.m.  Come in and meet many of the artists who will be on hand at the cooperative located in the heart of Sutter Creek at 35 Main Street.  The gallery is open daily (except Tuesday) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., our winter hours.

Let’s face it:  The holidays are coming way too soon.  But since they are, Sutter Creek Gallery has lots of gift suggestions. "Joyful Celebration,”will feature affordable art gifts, some whimsical, some practical, and all of them unique. Of course, we will also be displaying a selection of new winter and holiday paintings to celebrate the season. We’ll be decorating a tree with ornaments for sale and providing refreshments for the show’s opening. Come join us for some holiday cheer and meet many of the artists who have contributed their talents to this member show.

And bring your shopping list with you!
