Holiday Guide

Holiday Shopping With a Local Twist

Rhode Island's own artisans and makers take center stage at art and craft shows happening all over the state


Find one-of-a-kind gifts at the 47th annual Holiday Pottery and Art Sale at the South County Art Association in Kingston, running through December 17. The show features pottery, sculpture, jewelry, paintings, photography and more by SCAA members.

Keep your holiday pro tip a secret – or don’t – when you shop at the Small Works Holiday Show and Sale at the Wickford Art Association through December 23. All of the works are affordably priced, which means you’ll find the best gifts and still be able to afford something for yourself.

Until December 10, the annual Foundry Artists Holiday Show gathers local artists for a one–of–a–kind marketplace at the Pawtucket Armory, featuring large and small works by all local artists, in mediums like jewelry, painting, glass and photography.

The first year of the Art Providence Holiday Show, happening December 9–10 at the Rhode Island Convention Center, will feature nearly 200 local and national artists selling their one-of-a-kind wares, in mediums like fine art, furniture, jewelry and ceramics.
