Handmade holidays

As past visits attest, the holiday exhibition and sale at the Pelham Art Center is always an interesting experience, a chance to discover new work and, yes, do a bit of holiday shopping.

So we’re happy to share that the next edition of the center’s “Craft Marketplace: An Exhibition and Sale of the Handmade” opens with a reception and hands-on art workshop set for 6:30 to 8 p.m. Nov. 18.

Here’s how the organizers describe the event:

“Craft Marketplace will feature over 15 local and national artists who represent a range of traditional and modified artisan techniques, creating all one-of-a-kind items. Supporting both local economy and artists alike, the exhibition and sale is a creative alternative to commercial holiday shopping. A quirky illustration print, reclaimed wood lighting fixture or a pair of finely crafted metal earrings could be a unique and perfect gift for someone.”

Kate Amato, the center’s gallery and special events manager, has curated the marketplace. It will continue through Dec. 30 at the center, 155 Fifth Ave.
