2012 Holiday Sales

You can hear Christmas music on the radio soon and the Christmas decorations are in stores. Why not buy gifts from local artisans? My art (original paintings, hand-pulled prints, and greeting cards) will be available at two different holiday sales and they are on opposite sides of Portland, so it's more accessible for everyone in the Portland area to enjoy shopping for beautiful art.

The first sale is at Oregon College of Art and Craft in Portland near Saint Vincent Hospital. It is in the Jean Vollum Photography, Painting, and Drawing Building. I'm now an Alumni of OCAC and so I'm participating with Students and other Alumni in their annual Holiday Sale. The sale is only this weekend and the hours are as follows:
Friday, November 23
Pre Event complete with raffle prizes, live music, and hors d'oeuvres with a $10 suggested donation from 5 - 6pm
Doors open 6 - 8pm
Saturday, November 24
10am - 3pm
Sunday, November 25
10am - 3pm

The second sale is at Mount Hood Community College in Gresham and they call it "Scrooge Lives Holiday Sale." It will be held in the Student Union/College Center (parking Lot A is the closest). I submitted an application along with images of my art for a juried selection. I've also been busy (with the help of my husband) building wooden folding art displays for this sale and for future events that will require my own displays (they will be sooooo much better than just using tables!). The hours and days are as follows:
Tuesday, December 4
9am - 6pm
Wednesday, December 5
9am - 6pm

I won't be the only artisan at these sales, and if you can't make it to these two opportunities, then think about supporting your local artists!
