It's that time of year:
The annual all-member 
Holiday Sale & Show!

If you've been around the Kittery Art Association for a while, you know this to be true:  this is a BIG show!  For those newer to the KAA, we stock the gallery with a lot of our works of art that make fabulous unique, handmade, local gifts.

We hang art on the wall, and we set up tables and pedestals and other festive displays to show off our greeting cards, pottery, knit goods, scarves, mittens, ornaments, jewelry, stationery, journals, hats, prints, calendars, baskets, felted critters and whatever additional wonders our members have created.

In addition to regular Thursday 2-5 and Sat/Sun 11-5 hours, the gallery will be open on Fridays from 2-5 during the show.  Opening Day is Thursday December 5 and the last day is Sunday, December 15.  Just two short weeks for all of this awesomeness.  

AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS!!!
Holiday Concerts

That's right, there are TWO.  Susie Burke, David Surette and Kent Allyn have been so popular in the past that they have graciously agreed to perform TWO concerts for the KAA, on December 13 and 14 at the First Congregational Church of Kittery Point.

You can buy tickets online via our website, or by visiting the gallery, or by calling the gallery to reserve with your credit card.  Lastly, there will be some tickets available at the door for $20 on the night of each show.  Both shows start at 7pm.

Thank You, KSB!

The Kittery Art Association recently received a generous donation from the Kennebunk Savings Bank.  Support from our members and our sponsors  keeps us going, and we are so grateful for this recognition of the importance of art in the local community!
