Both Galleries will feature one of a kind and limited edition gifts in ceramics, fiber, photographs, wood, jewelry, paintings, glass, scrimshaw, collage, toys, painted furniture, and more. Truman Terrell will entertain on piano while shoppers enjoy food and wine at the opening. Over 30 artisans will be selling their fine arts and crafts through December 20.

On Saturday, December 14, Timothy Wade, local sand and ice sculptor and painter, will give an ice carving demonstration starting at 10:00 am on the patio outside the Art Center on the Pleasant Street side. Meanwhile, inside the Art Center, local wood carver Mike McCarthy, known for his beautiful bird carvings, will be giving a bird-carving demonstration. Visitors are invited to come and watch both artisans as they transform ice into sculpture and wood into lifelike birds. The Marion Art Center is one of the stops on the Sippican Women’s Club House Tour, and visitors are cordially invited to come inside and find that one of kind gift.
