2013 Annual Holiday Art Sale

December 6-30, 2013

The 2013 Annual Holiday Art Sale at Creativity Explored is an art lover’s shopping extravaganza.

This year we’re giving 30% off all original artwork to celebrate the end of our 30th anniversary year! (NOTE: Discount does not apply to online store orders or any products.)

Stop by Creativity Explored this holiday season to find some excellent gifts in the form of original art or unique art-fully designed products.

The studio is filled with original art prints, paintings, drawings, ceramics, sculptures, and textiles by over 135 artists—including unique pieces saved for this very occasion.

As the finale to our 30th Anniversary Celebration year, we're introducing a few limited-edition items, as well as bringing back some old favorites. Artful merchandise includes: re-printed PEACE cards featuring Laron Bickerstaff's ASL drawings; Arts and Eats, a recently published cookbook featuring CE art plus a chef's apron featuring John Patrick McKenzie's artwork; a new kids t-shirt; and, Christina Marie Fong's popular money drawing tote bags.

As always, you'll find useful (and popular) notecards, wrapping paper, and journals. The ten-zine Tell You What series by Beth Lisick, complete with binder, is a great gift for any occassion!

Reminder: One-half of the proceeds from the sale of every artwork goes directly to the artist!

CE artist Daniel Green's work has been selected for Southern Exposure's annual juried exhibition, This Will Never Work.

This Will Never Work features explorations both thematic and material-based, humorous attempts, impossible ideas and redaction-based work. The artists are all from Northern California, north of King City and south of the Oregon border. Exhibition juror Corrina Peipon selected the works by blind process, evaluating the pieces within the context of this year’s theme. For many of the artists selected, this is their first major exhibition and a vital step forward in their art careers.
