Art for Gifts 2015

It’s that wonderful time of year when the Staunton Augusta Art Center transforms its galleries into a merry, very full holiday shopping boutique known as Art for Gifts. Over 70 juried artists and artisans are participating; many are new to this year’s event so there will be a lot to tempt you. Come select one-of-a-kind handmade items that will make your gift giving memorable. Support area artists and your non-profit Staunton Augusta Art Center all at the same time. Gallery hours are extended November 14-December 31 to 10am-6pm Monday-Saturday and 1-4pm Sunday. Staunton Augusta Art Center members receive a 10% discount throughout the sale.
