Find Extraordinary Gifts at Guilford Art Center’s Holiday Shop

Guilford Art Center announces the opening of its annual holiday shopping event which takes place November 1, 2021 through January 9, 2022. The Shop at Guilford Art Center doubles in size, filling the shop and gallery with extraordinary work from over 200 American artists, makers and designers. Gift categories include ceramics, pottery, glass, jewelry, homewares, clothing, fiber, ornaments, accessories, toys, specialty foods, stationery, leather goods and more.

This year features many new artists, both local and national, as well as new work by established artists. New items are added throughout the course of the show, so visitors will always have fresh shopping experiences every time they visit.

“There are so many compelling reasons to shop at GAC for the holidays”, says Maureen Belden, Guilford Art Center’s Executive Director. “Shoppers can find curated gifts at different price points for everyone on their list. Furthermore, every purchase made benefits an artist, and helps to support GAC’s mission of nurturing and supporting art in the community all year long.”

GAC offers visitors a variety of shopping experiences: personal shoppers are available for advice and gift-giving ideas; a registry makes gift-selection easy; and businesses can take advantage of personal shoppers and discounts for employee holiday gift-giving.

Proceeds benefit the exhibiting artists and Guilford Art Center’s educational and community programs. Hours starting November 1: Monday through Saturday, 10:00am-5:30pm and Sunday 12-5pm.
