We are super excited that this winter, we’ll be turning our CVA Gallery into THE destination for holiday gifts for every art lover on your list. Featuring a wide array of high-quality fine art and handcrafted goods, there’s something for everyone! As we “unboxed” the artwork as it got delivered, we practically squealed with excitement over:

  • unique and gorgeous handmade jewelry, scarves, and other textiles
  • all kinds of pottery, from the functional to the decorative
  • 2-D work ranging from graffiti art and trippy prints to landscapes and fiber wall hangings
  • furniture and lighting
  • holiday ornaments
  • beautifully scented soaps
  • much, much more

Check out our Facebook and Instagram pages for tons of images and more details about events we have planned to go along with this show and sale:

  • Sip-and-Shop, Small Business Saturday, Nov. 24, 10 a.m. – noon. From 10 a.m. until noon, enjoy a seasonal mimosa or sparkling water and shop ‘til you drop while your kiddos create their own holiday crafts…supervised by us! Mimosas until they run out; gallery open until 5 p.m.
