17th Annual Holiday Store

November 2 – December 30, 2018

What began in 2002 as a tiny pop-up shop with a few local artists has blossomed into the Heights Arts 17th Annual Holiday Store, featuring creative items by about 100 Northeast Ohio visual artists and artisans, writers, and musicians.

In addition to ceramics, jewelry, art on paper and glass by popular Cleveland favorites such as Lynn Lofton, Sandra Curry, Jen Craun, and Shayna Roth Pentacost, we’re thrilled about the variety of new works from more than 20 new artists, ranging from Screen Prints by Triple Threat Press to embroidered bags by Coretta Kutash, and jewelry by Alyson Holobaugh.  Visitors will also find handmade artist cards and ornaments, photography, handknits and printed tees, artisan items for the home and littlest family members, plus local music CDs and chapbooks by Cleveland poets.

Again this year is a gift registry, so visitors can jot down the items they’d love to receive for holiday gift-giving, and friends or family members can access when they stop in. Heights Arts has also commissioned handmade Judaica, thanks to funding from the Mandel Foundation, and will have a custom ceramic menorah and pewter mezuzot available for order.
Open seven days a week through December 30, the Holiday Store is stocked with new, handmade items on a weekly basis, so all are encouraged to support local artists by shopping early and often. Artists also volunteer their time to help visitors in the store and share information about their craft.



A Heights Arts members-only preview will be held Friday, November 2 from 5-7 p.m., with a public reception for the entire community from 7-9 p.m. the same evening. Special holiday shopping nights are planned throughout the season, when you can savor local brews, shop from your gift list, and enjoy complimentary gift wrapping for all purchases.
