December 2018 Exhibitions
Opening Reception: Friday, December 7th, 4 - 7 pm
Starting the day after Thanksgiving and continuing through the month of December, the MacRostie Gallery is transformed into a holiday marketplace. This annual exhibition celebrates the diverse and talented artists that live and work in northern Minnesota. It’s also an opportunity for MAC members and patrons to find unique, handmade gifts during the holiday season and make purchases that support both local artists and MacRostie Art Center.
A wide variety of work from local artists is displayed including jewelry, carved wooden bowls, pottery, drawings, wooden toys, birch bark weaving, hand-dyed scarves, paintings, and more. The MAC also carries a number of local books, CDs and DVDs.
