The best gifts are those that are made with care and craftsmanship. What better place to find such treasures than at your local art center? On Sunday, Nov. 12, the West Windsor Arts Center will host its annual juried Off the Wall Affordable Art Sale and Artisan Market where shoppers will find original artwork and handmade items at prices that won’t break the bank. All the art on the walls is priced at $300 or less and the artisan items have been juried to bring one of a kind pieces you won’t find anywhere else. Items for purchase include jewelry, ceramics, glass, fiber, textiles, wood and more. Visitors can shop for handmade gifts including scarves and accessories created with hand-dyed felt and silk; American hardwood cutting boards and other kitchen items; innovative jewelry made with silver, gold, gemstones, and hand-blown glass; wheel thrown as well as hand-built ceramic bowls, mugs and platters; and much more. Admission is $2 per person.
The Off the Wall Affordable Art Sale will feature more than 70 artists displaying over 100 works of original wall art including paintings in acrylic, watercolor, and oil; drawings; photography both pure images and manipulated; relief prints, etchings and engravings; mixed media and collage works; and fiber and textile works. The Artisan Market will feature 22 new and returning artisans.
