Gray Wall Gallery is excited to host a special Christmas Show that focuses on giving the gift of local art this holiday season and encourage everyone to support local businesses during this holiday season. Shopping local keeps three times as much money in the local economy as buying from a big box store. Gray Wall will be promoting the art work of 13 local artists who have focused on pieces that are ideal for gifts. Featured during the show are works ranging from the traditional to the unique, both large and small, and in all price ranges. Many of the artists have tried to focus on the green element like Julie Penman’s urban recycled jewelry or Giuliana Serena’s hats and scarves made from completely local sources.
The first annual Gray Wall Christmas Show will be held on Saturday December 11th, 2010 from 6 p.m. to 9p.m. at Gray Wall Gallery located at 351 W. Pierpont Ave Ste. 2B. The event is free and open to the public.
Affordably-priced items like prints, messenger bags and jewelry will be available as well as pottery and larger works on canvas. Live music will be provided throughout the event and light refreshments will be served all in the intimate setting of a gallery.
“What better way to revitalize the economy at large than to support our local economy?” asks Tamara Fox, one of the gallery founders. “You can support local artists and you will have unique, one of a kind gifts that will be treasured forever.”
“We’ve had great artist and customer response for this show.” says Sarah Cuvelier, artist liaison for the gallery. “People are excited to see art come back to Pierpont.”
This event is sponsored by the Utah Arts Alliance and Gray Wall Gallery.
