EXHIBITS & MUSIC

The Art of the Gift Invitational opens Friday, November 23!

Members 4:30 PM, everyone else 5:30-7:00 PM

We’ve transformed the East Oregonian Gallery into a showcase for exciting works created by craftspeople from across the country and right here at home. We selected functional and wearable items we think you’ll love browsing through and giving as gifts for the holiday season, and included lots of stocking stuffers under $10. AND, on Saturday December 1 we’re featuring Kris O’Grady’s infamous “Wreath Bar.” Pick out a gorgeous fresh wreath then have Kris work with you to create a wreath reflective of your personal style.

Need another look at Jenny Morgan’s work? Didn’t get to listen to all the stories in the gallery? Check it all out HERE.
