The Annual Holiday Art Sale at Creativity Explored is an art lover’s shopping extravaganza, with a multitude of remarkable art—and this year we’re giving 30% off all original artwork to celebrate our 30th anniversary in 2013!  (NOTE:  Discount does not apply to online store orders.)

We’ve filled the studio with prints, paintings, drawings, ceramics, sculptures, and textiles by over 130 artists—including unique pieces saved for this very occasion.

This year’s exciting limited edition items include a tote bag featuring one of Christina Marie Fong's popular money drawings ($100 bill), a set of eight bold abstract art greeting cards, hand-screened t-shirts, bright wrapping paper, and journals.

Like all Creativity Explored exhibitions, one-half of the proceeds from the sale of every artwork goes directly to the artist.

Detail artworks by Natalie Spring, Camille Holvoet, Thanh My Diep, Lance Rivers, and Christina Marie Fong.

Curated by Glen Helfand and Jack Fischer.

(Pre)Fabricators is the first part of a groundbreaking three-phase project involving five Creativity Explored artists and a range of collaborators.

CE artists Thanh My Diep, Christina Marie Fong, Camille Holvoet, Lance Rivers, and Natalie Spring will be part of a unique partnership with curators, a team of students from ENGAGE at CCA (California College of the Arts), IDEO, and Jack Fischer Gallery that will result in two exhibitions and the production of new works.

(Pre)Fabricators is a showcase of works by the five CE artists who will be participating in this exciting project. As selected by art critic, curator, writer, and educator Glen Helfand and San Francisco gallery owner Jack Fischer, the pieces reflect an energetic range of interests and sensibilities, as well as a cohesive sense of community.
