Holiday Art Fair at the Cider Gallery

IMG_9247Please join us this year at Cider Gallery, 810 Pennsylvania for a wonderful Holiday Art Fair. The venue has changed but the quality and quantity of lovely gift ideas has not. The event runs Saturday, December 2nd from 9:00 to 4:00 and features dozens of area artists. You’ll be sure to find a the perfect, unique gift for everyone on your holiday shopping list!

Remember, when you support the Lawrence Art Guild you are also supporting area Public High School art programs. Proceeds from the 10% commission that artists pay go directly into our Public High School Gifting Program. This year the Lawrence Art Guild gave $7,000 to Douglas County Public High School art programs allowing many of them to purchase large equipment for their classrooms that they otherwise           couldn’t afford.  So help our artists support emerging student artists with their future goals.
