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 ceramics, decorative fiber, wearable fiber, drawing, furniture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, painting, paper, photography, printmaking, sculpture and wood. Whether you're a holiday shopper, an art collector seeking the new and interesting, or an interior designer seeking fresh ideas, this show has something for you! It's also a kid-friendly with free admission for those 12 and under and special print-making activities available at the Kids' Corner.
