Artists and Artisans: Small Works
The Most Unique Art Exhibit on the Shoreline this Holiday Season
Creativity, beauty, energy and variety come together in Old Saybrook for the holiday season. The artists of Gallery One have reinvented this exciting group with many new artists for a stunning two month holiday show, Artists and Artisans: Small Works. This co-operative group of 18 painters, sculptors and craftspeople, all living and working within a 50 mile radius of Old Saybrook have brought together their latest, most exciting works for a captivating show that encompasses a variety of styles, mediums, and points of view. There is something for everyone from the contemporary art connoisseur, and the devotee of impressionism, to the lover of handcrafted one of a kind items created by talented artisans. Offerings include environmental jewelry, stoneware pottery, felted scarves, wireworked baskets, porcelain ornaments and more. The show will be on exhibit at The Clayhouse, 665 Boston Post Road, Old Saybrook Shopping Center, two doors down from HomeGoods.
