The holiday spirit!
I love the holiday season! We’ve finally put up our tree over the weekend and we had a nice big snowstorm so everything looks pretty outside, all ready for Christmas! On Sunday we went to the Salon des métiers d’art de Montréal to buy our final Christmas presents. I like to give presents made by artists because that way I’m not only giving a beautiful, original gift but I’m supporting the artists at the same time! And contrary to many peoples believes, art doesn’t need to be expensive! Many artists create smaller pieces just for these occasions and if an original is out of your price range many artists sell limited edition prints. Even a framed greeting card can make a beautiful holiday gift!
A good place for some last minute holiday shopping will be Viva Vida Art Gallery. This Saturday, December 21st,they are organizing a special holiday open house! Not only will you be able to enjoy the 5th annual small works exhibit: Small Art... BIG Deal, but there will also be holiday themed art workshops for kids and adults that you can participate in for only $5,-! I’m very much looking forward to the holiday themed direct transfers I’ll be doing and Heather Boyd will be there to teach you how to make your own holiday ornaments! Come out to see the art, buy some gifts or create your own! Enjoy an afternoon of art, creativity and holiday cheer at Viva Vida Art Gallery!
