Holiday gift shoppers, look no further.
It’s time for The Art Center’s 42nd annual Holiday Art & Craft Fair, a time-honored holiday tradition for Western Slope residents and eager participating crafters. Visitors can walk through four full galleries of booths lined with pottery, jams, pies, soaps, ornaments, woodworking, jewelry, clothing and much more. Holiday shoppers return year after year and are constantly amazed at the quality and wide array of handmade arts and crafts on display.
Handmade objects are handed down from generation to generation; they never lose their charm and value. And these gifts come from many disciplines from fine artists to finely packaged culinary creations. This juried Craft Fair brings together items for every gender and every age.
The Art & Craft Fair is the second largest fundraising event for The Art Center, located at 1803 N. Seventh St., but it also helps artists sell and promote their own works.
Every year, The Art Center selects a nonprofit to participate in The Art and Craft Fair. Juniper Ridge Community School will have a booth with information and handmade treasures. Juniper Ridge is a multicultural K-6 charter school using an arts and nature-based curriculum rooted in the Waldorf tradition. Roice-Hurst Humane Society will be the nonprofit booth in next year’s Art and Craft Fair.
Those over 21 years of age can enjoy a glass of wine while shopping through the galleries. The Art Center Guild will once again be selling delicious homemade baked goods and will also be selling scrumptious food and beverages from the kitchen. It is a great time to enjoy the guild’s chili, sandwiches, salad, and the famous Kingman chicken casserole. All proceeds go to fund Art Center programs.
The fair is open to the public on Saturday, Nov. 23, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 24, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. A members-only preview is planned for Friday, Nov. 22, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Admission to The Art and Craft Fair is free and open to the public. For more information call 970-243-7337, ext. 2.

At the beginning of the pandemic, all artist Wewer Keohane wanted to do was clean her studio.
