Holiday Happenings with Local Artists

We realize that even the best of efforts falls short in capturing a truly comprehensive list of artists and events that can support your holiday shopping this season. We do hope this list offers you a good starting point to find, and shop from, the amazing artists we are fortunate to have across our 5-county region.

Please let us know what we’ve missed! We will be updating as best as possible to keep you informed this holiday season. Email kathryn@r2arts.org with details.
