Sure, you could give him another sweater or get her another gift certificate, but what about an original work of art created locally? Now through Christmas Eve, Palo Alto's Gallery House at 320 California Ave. is displaying works by regional painters, sculptors, ceramicists, jewelers, photographers and more.
The Artful Holiday Show features works by 43 Bay Area-based members of the Gallery House cooperative, and their art represents a wide range of artistic styles, from the figurative to the abstract, the formal to the whimsically playful.
The show kicks off with a 20 percent discount on Friday, Nov. 20, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. That same evening, the gallery hosts a free reception, 6-8 p.m, where members of the public can meet the artists and chat about their work. For more information, go to galleryhouse2.com or call 650-326-1668.
