Known for its exceptional quality and variety of work, ranging from textile, paper and photographic art to award-winning ceramics, watercolors, encaustics and jewelry, Holiday Art Sale kicks off the weekend with an opening reception Friday, Dec. 1, from 7 to 9 p.m.
Weekend hours for the event are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2, and 12-4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 3.
Studio 545 features public art on its exterior by Jason Jones, who installed the creation as part of this year’s Green Candy Art Action, a weeklong event aimed to create community conversations around waste and sustainability through interactive and participatory art.
Conveniently located on Center Street and just off the Razorback Greenway Trail, the gallery at Studio 545 is within easy walking distance of the Historic Downtown Square and Dickson Street. So, along with shopping at the Holiday Art Sale, plan on also doing some holiday shopping at the many boutiques and store throughout downtown, and enjoying the entertainment capital of Northwest Arkansas.

- Kathy Collier, macro-photography
