The Granby Artists Association will host its 10th annual Holiday Gift Show, Dec. 2-3, at the Holcomb Farm Learning Center. This is truly a “buy local” event! Eight of the association’s talented members will have an array of items including paintings, prints, note cards, lamps, bowls, jewelry, calligraphy, glass art vessels and ornaments.

 Jean-Luc Godard will show new designs etched on medallions cut from storm-damaged limbs from the Granby Oak, and an illuminated Lotus Flower. Avis Cherichetti has a new bowl series inspired by flowers and seed pods. Linda Yurasevecz has new horsehair raku pieces, and cell phone and sponge holders. Annukka Ritalahti and Mark Gottlieb have new ornaments, blown glass vessels and unique glass jewelry. Laura Eden will show her new 5×7 original paintings and will unveil her 2017 hand-painted glass ornament of mountain birch. Sally Sargent Markey will show paintings, prints, note cards, holiday ornaments, and her whimsical stray-sock animals. Debby Reelitz will have calligraphic art, organic t-shirts and a new holiday ornament, as well as new cards and a series of works around the theme of courage.
The show will run from 10 am to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2, and noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 3. There is no admission charge. Children from Granby middle school and Granby home school will perform holiday music. Come for lunch and enjoy hearty fare from Waste Not Want Not Community Kitchen including soups and snacks. Holcomb Farm is located at 113 Simsbury Road in West Granby. Visit www.granbyartists.org for directions.
This annual community event is a great opportunity to purchase unique and affordable art for holiday giving and is a wonderful way to kindle holiday spirit.
