Creativity Explored’s Holiday Art Shop returns!

Gather your friends and join us to celebrate the opening reception at our annual Holiday Art Shop.

While the gallery and studio offers a quality collection of affordable art products all year round, this is the time of year to indulge! Select from thousands of original creations by over 135 studio artists, including paintings, sculpture, ornaments, textiles, mixed media, and other unique holiday gifts that defy categorization.

Plus, shop for exclusive gift items including enamel pins, adult and youth t-shirts, notecard packs, notebook and pencil sets, wrapping paper, writing journals, and holiday tattoos, all featuring artwork by Creativity Explored artists.

Get inspired this holiday season and give artful gifts that give back. One-half of the proceeds from the sale of every artwork goes directly to the artist.
