The Gift of Art
If you’re looking for that hard to find present to give to friends and family this holiday season, or want to create a piece of art to give away during the holidays join MatrixArts at The Gift of Art, Saturday December 5th, 12th and 19th from noon to 8 pm and Sunday December 6th and 13th 10 am to 4 pm. The Gift of Art will be held at the new Pop-Up Gallery @R25, the arts and cultural center in Midtown, 1719 25th Street.
The Gift or Art features fine arts, antiques, textiles and crafts from more than 20 regional artists and artisans, including Lawrence Fox, Maryellen Burns, Joy Gee, Daphne Burgess, Laura Martin, Tom Haseltine, Pali Delevitt, Joseph Finkleman, Sister Sheba and artists from MatrixArts, Sacramento City College, Alpha Ceramics, and Women’s Wisdom Project.
You’ll also be able to purchase signed in the stone lithographs by Alexander Calder, Picasso and Fernard Leger, Asian art, plus decorative arts and antiques, photography, estate jewelry, textile arts, ceramic sculpture, greeting cards and boxes, art kits and supplies, and other ephemera you won’t find at all the craft fairs you’re invited to this time of year. We even have A Dollar Store, full of arts and craft supplies.
Bring the family and make art to take home. Each day we’ll create a different holiday gift idea – miniature book ornaments, origami stars, decoupage boxes and more.
Proceeds benefit MatrixArts Kids, and teen and adult programs in schools, libraries and community centers throughout Northern California.
We accept cash, checks and almost all credit cards.
