Arts & Ends Holiday Sale takes place during the Off the Wall Exhibit: 200 Pieces Under $200. This non-traditional art show features works of all mediums priced at $200 or less. All sales are “cash and carry,” meaning purchasers will get to take the piece with them when they buy it, instead of waiting until the end of the exhibit. The exhibit runs through Dec. 29. Guests can also shop works from over 75 local and regional artists in the gift shop.
“We hope that this event and exhibit inspires shoppers to consider buying from local artists this season,” said Krista Johnson, exhibitions coordinator at the Alliance for the Arts. “Purchasing local art is a gift that gives back to a thriving creative economy.”
