Challenge the shallow materialism of the American holiday season. Reconnect with symbolism, culture, and meaning through locally crafted objects.

November 25 - December 22, 2022

Each of the artists in this show was asked to create objects that express their culture and/or connect with the deeper meanings and symbolism of the Christmas season. In a season that is synonymous with tinsel and cheap glitter, this collection of work serves as a counterpoint to meaningless mass produced kitsch.
