Holiday Art Boutique is the Place to Shop on Hilton Head Island, SC

The Hilton Head Art League will open the holiday season with its annual Holiday Arts Boutique featuring giftable art. The Boutique will open on Nov. 25 and continue through Jan. 3, 2003, at the League's gallery in Pineland Station, on Hilton Head Island, SC. Over the years, the Holiday Arts Boutique has become the traditional starting place for holiday shopping, so to find the greatest selection of wonderful gift items, it's a good idea to come early and come often.

The Boutique offers a variety of seasonal items, including ceramics, Christmas tree ornaments and decorative pieces for the home. Fine art is always a welcome gift, and the Art League's member artists provide a broad array of paintings, sculptures, woodturnings, photography, and high quality prints from which to select. In addition there are notecards, jewelry, bottle stoppers, and much more.

Very popular are the Art League Gift Certificates that are available for those who are hesitant to select a piece of art for friends or family. The gift certificates can be in any denomination to fit any holiday shopping budget. There are also marvelous sweatshirts with the colorful Art League sunburst logo. These come in a variety of sizes to accommodate everyone on your shopping list, including youngsters.

Another great gift idea is a year's gift membership to the Art League for friends or family members. Membership provides a year of enjoyment with invitations to all special Art League events, a monthly newsletter and other art related activities. Individual memberships for the 2004 calendar year are $40, and family memberships are $75. Or, how about gift-wrapping a brochure featuring the art classes at the Hilton Head Art League Art Academy, or the week-long workshops sponsored by the League and held at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina. Nationally renowned instructors teach the workshops, and the instructors at the Academy are all well-known local artists. For the person who always wanted to paint, or cultivate existing art skills, a gift of an art class is a gift they will truly enjoy and continue to use throughout their lives.

The artists who participate in the annual Holiday Arts Boutique have been planning all year to come up with new, creative and fun items to make the holiday season seem brighter. Remember last year's oyster shell angel Christmas Tree ornaments made by Kathy Quarles? We're hoping to see some
new versions on that popular item this year. Holiday wreathes have presented in cork, oyster shells and other seasonal materials. Who knows what clever idea and variation on the theme Nancy Wittke will provide this time?

Approximately 30 artists will take part in the 2004 Boutique. Many names are familiar to our local art connoisseurs and include: Nino Belfiore, Anita Blewer, Betty Brodie Luntey, Joanne Burgess, Frances Camilleri, Susan Citron, Mary Lou Cost, John Diamond, Marilyn Dizikes, Sheri Farbstein, Dave Musial, Lynn Parrott, Doris Shay, Barb Snow, Sara Tiffany and Ann White, among others.
