As part of Small Business Saturday, be sure to check out the opening of the annual Affordable Arts Holiday Show at Fuller Lodge Art Center (FLAC).
Step into the gallery space and be transported into a winter wonderland of affordable holiday gifts.
Something for every member of the family, for any budget, can be found while supporting more than 100 local small businesses!
From stained glass to needle-felted sculptures, to photographic prints, a wide variety of work is being offered, both holiday themed and not. The Art Center is participating in the Blue Bucks Raffle, and 5 percent of all proceeds on Small Business Saturday will be donated to Moving Arts Española. Moving Arts Española uses its donations to provide children with scholarships for classes, after school tutoring, free meals for families, and employment for youth and adults.
The Portal Gallery at the Fuller Lodge Art Center also will feature Best of the Jemez, a showing of nationally exhibited artist Theodore Greer’s photography work, also for sale. Greer is a local artist who has photographed New Mexico landscape for many years, since his childhood spent at trading posts on the Navajo and Zuni reservations.
The Affordable Arts Show and Best of the Jemez will be up through Jan. 8 to give shoppers plenty of time to pick out the perfect piece.
After perusing the shelves at Fuller Lodge Art Center, make head over to Step Up Gallery at Mesa Public Library. The Santa Fe Pleinairians’ Gift of Small Paintings is being displayed; more than 25 of New Mexico’s best plein air painters display small works priced for holiday shopping. This will be the Santa Fe Pleinairians’ first exhibition in Los Alamos, and the first exhibit in the Step Up Gallery that will give buyers the option of taking home an original piece of reasonably priced work same-day.
In galley purchasing will be available 1-5 p.m. Monday -Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The gallery will be closed Friday, Nov. 26 and on Sundays. Gift of Small Painting runs from Wednesday, Nov. 24 to Jan. 2, 2022.
The Fuller Lodge Art Center will have extended hours throughout the holiday season. The Art Center will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon to 3 p.m. Sundays.
