Kick off this year’s holiday season at Watermark Art Center! On December 4th and 5th, Watermark will hold its annual Holiday Open House. There will be special one-weekend-only sales in the Gallery Shop, with 15% off any purchase for Watermark members and 10% off for the general public. Plus free gift wrap! The Gallery Shop features functional and decorative handmade items created by over 30 artists and includes pottery, wood, jewelry, silk scarves, knit items, prints, photography, soaps, cards, and more.

Watermark’s current exhibit, It’s Only Clay, will be on display, featuring functional ceramic items. Handmade mugs, platters, bowls, tea pots, and more will be available for viewers to appreciate or purchase.

The 4th annual Ornament Sale will also be launched during the Open House. Each year, local artists donate handmade tree ornaments as a fundraiser for the art center. Watermark receives 100% of the cost from these items, helping make money for next year’s programming. The ornaments are a variety of styles and make great gift traditions for family and friends. They will continue to be sold in the Gallery Shop through the holiday season.

During the Open House, there will be free coffee and hot cider available, as well as treats and other goodies. Watermark is located at 505 Bemidji Ave N and is open weekdays 10-5 and Saturdays 10-2. Come to the art center for a fun and festive shopping weekend December 4th and 5th!
