Scandinavian Holiday Gift Fair begins

Scandinavian Holiday Gift Fair begins

December 1st

The Washington Art Association & Gallery has been hosting its annual WAA Holiday Fair for over 64 years. A blend of work from fine artists and creative craftspeople has graced our galleries with a wide variety of distinctive gifts. WAA Holiday Fair not only provides support for WAA and the artists/vendors, it also offers unique treasures for everyone’s gift giving list.  This year’s theme: A Scandinavian Holiday.

What sets the Washington Art Association’s Annual Holiday Sale apart from others is not only the exquisitely handcrafted gifts by local artisans, but a talented group of volunteers, designers and artists source and curate unique objects and transform the galleries into a magical shopping experience.   This year is no exception. Event co-chairs, artist, Maryellen Furse and interior designer, Bruce Glickman are planning another unique marketplace based on “hygee” (pronounced hue-guh not hoo-gah), a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment, whether alone or with friends, at home or out, ordinary or extraordinary as cozy, charming or special.   Inspired by the clean lines and simple forms of Scandinavian design, Bruce and Maryellen have used objects that feature warmth, simplicity, harmony, light and nature. Come join us on December 1 through December 24 to celebrate the season with traditional and contemporary holiday gifts for everyone on your list.
