The Art of Giving

    Creative holiday shopping made easy at “The Art of Giving”
An Ogden Museum members-only shopping event, Friday Dec. 3rd
Open to the general public Weds. Dec. 4th  – Mon. Dec. 6th

The Ogden Museum of Southern Art’s Center for Southern Craft and Design will expand its boundaries for “The Art of Giving”: a museum members-only deluxe shopping evening event on Fri. Dec. 3. This special holiday art and craft showcase will be open to the general public Weds. Dec. 4 – Mon. Dec. 6. In addition to the museum’s first-floor retail space, the atrium and third floor will be filled with one-of-a kind pieces by more than 80 Southern artists.

Gifts! Give a present with a sense of Southern style and place! Original art (photographs, prints), art glass, jewelry, ceramics, wood, metal, textiles, as well as books (fiction, nonfiction—even cookbooks) and CDs by Southern musicians will be available. Special items from Scriptura and Nadine Blake.

Booksignings: Bryan Batt, She Ain’t Heavy, She’s My Mother; Scott Barretta, Mississippi – State of Blues; Debra Shriver, Stealing Magnolias: Tales from a New Orleans Courtyard.

Special Appearances! Rachel Therese DePauw (ceramic), Mark Derby (ceramic), Niki Fisk (jewelry), John Humphries (jewelry), and Tina Stanley (jewelry).  

• Additional Savings! Because the Ogden is in a special cultural district, there is no sales tax on purchases of original art.
