This season shop with heart, give more art!

Our beloved Holiday Art Shop returns for your gift-giving pleasure! The salon-style pop-up shop will offer giftable and affordable works of art curated just for you by the CE team. From ceramics and sculpture to paintings and digital prints, you won’t want to miss out on the most unique Holiday gifts San Francisco has to offer.

Plus, shop our selection of original and limited-edition gift products, including trendy enamel pins, artistic apparel, wrapping paper and our ever-popular notecards to accompany all of your holiday purchases.

Get creative this season and give artful gifts that give back. Remember, 50% of the proceeds from any art sale go directly to the artist.



Join us to celebrate the season in the CE tradition at the opening celebration of the Holiday Art Shop! Get the first pick of the salon-style pop-up and take care of your seasonal shopping before the crowds. Enjoy mulled wine and holiday-themed nibbles as you explore the studio for one-of-a-kind gifts and mingle with the artists and community. Dress to impress for our Artsy Sweater Contest for a chance to win fabulous prizes.

Plus, take selfies at the CE photobooth with artist Vincent Jackson and get crafty at our Ornament Crafting table. Groove to tunes all night long by DJ Sergio Fedasz (Go BANG!, San Francisco) and later dance your heart out for our Holiday Disco Dance Party power hour!

Can't make the celebration? Shop original art and products on our webstore!
