This juried show has its roots in the former RISD Holiday Sale but has been broadened to include artists of all backgrounds. As such, it is a vibrant celebration of art, craft and design that features high caliber work of approximately 200 artists from throughout New England, New York, New Jersey and beyond. Categories include baskets, ceramics, decorative fiber, wearable fiber, drawing, furniture, glass, graphics, jewelry, leather, leather, metal, mixed media, painting, paper, photography, printmaking, sculpture and wood. Whether you're a holiday shopper, an art collector seeking new and interesting, or an interior designer seeking fresh ideas, this show has something for you! It's also a kid-friendly with with special print-making activities available at the Kids' Corner.

New this year is the addition of the Early Stage Artist Program (ESAP), which facilitates show participation for up to 24 artists/makers/designers who have been selling their work in public forums for less than 5 years. The artists whose work is accepted will each have a designated 4'Wx2'D area within a larger 'community booth,' will be provided with a display structure, and will pay a reduced booth fee.
