Holiday Happenings This Week in Carroll County

Gallery of Gifts at the Carroll Arts Center

Now through December 22nd

During the holiday season, the Tevis gallery is transformed into “Gallery of Gifts,” a unique shopping boutique This special cash and carry exhibit resembles a boutique rather than a traditional gallery exhibit, as 45+ artists display their festive wares. The show features the same level of artistic quality that Arts Center visitors have come to expect and encourages our commitment to “buy handmade.” There are a wide variety of hand-crafted creations from inexpensive stocking stuffers, holiday décor and traditional arts and crafts to truly elegant special gifts. Local artists combine with regional artists for a distinct flavor of fashion, fantasy and whimsy.
