Art Spotlight: December 2017

Holiday Craft Sales

Throughout the month of December, artisans of all kinds are joining together for various holiday art and craft shows on the North Shore. Each show is a little different, offering everything from live music, tasty treats, prizes and a hands-on craft table. And each show features multiple artists, showcasing handmade mittens, jewelry, paintings, pottery, ornaments, photography and more.
