Learn "The Art of Giving" at the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts
Each holiday season the members of the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts transform the gallery to showcase original ornaments and hand-made gifts. The gallery's 21 members work in a variety of media, providing a wide array of fine art and fine craft for holiday shoppers. The glass art includes hand-blown vessels, ornaments, hummingbird feeders, paperweights, and jewelry. Fiber art on display includes framed fabric collages and hand dyed stitched cloth. The jewelry in the show covers a variety of styles and techniques, from copper and bronze to sterling and fine silver necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings, some with gold accents and stones. Visitors will also find metal sculpture, figurative sculpture, pottery, and hand-made furniture. Fine art photography, oil and acrylic painting, scratchboard, and mixed media work festively surround the three dimensional pieces on pedestals.

The Art of Giving runs from November 15th through December 31st with a reception during Hillsborough's Last Fridays Art Walk on Friday, November 25th from 6-9pm.
