A Holiday Boutique Show
Imagine a marketplace with a festive atmosphere that invites you to stroll among colorful booths displaying exquisitely handcrafted wares, a marketplace that inspires you with beautiful pieces of art that are created by local artists. For one day only, local patrons of the arts have conceived of such a marketplace that combines the artistry and creativity of our local talent with community outreach and support to give the gift of art.
"Imagine nourishing your creative spirit and spreading the joy of giving gifts made with passion and love," expresses jeweler Silvia Peluso, the boutique coordinator. She is looking forward to a fun day with her fellow artisans and encourages shoppers to embrace their joy of giving. You are invited to stroll among the treasures and find a richly colored silk scarf for an aunt, admire captivating wire wrapped jewelry for a friend, and dig among artfully arranged succulents for the hostess of a holiday event. Discover vibrantly painted ceramic goods or beautifully assembled mosaics for your home and browse among frames, cards and ornaments to chance upon a unique treasure to give. Grab a fashionably trendy and brightly colored fashionista homie hat, or a cool silver cuff for your impossible teen and charm new mothers with adorable baby outfits and matching accessories. Treat yourself to an extravagant fashion ensemble and soothe your night with an herbal dream pillow. Celebrate a successful day with hot cider and delicious homemade treats.
"Art transforms everybody's home, decorates everybody's wall and lives in everybody's soul," suggests designer Stefani Conniff, the show curator. As a special treat 14 local artists are invited to enhance the creative flair of the marketplace. The curator chose artworks representative of the local mood, as well as a few pieces with a unique flair. Beautifully painted familiar landscapes, luscious flowers, somber surfers or delicate ballerinas are waiting to decorate your blank walls. Intricate local photo collages, or lacy coffee grain creations are sure to inspire vivid conversations at your next event. Express your love to your special someone by giving the memory of an everlasting piece of art.
You are invited to share this delightful day in the essence of giving to all whom you love and to your community that you live in. "In true holiday spirit the art community of Redondo Beach will host the First Annual Creative Holiday Boutique to celebrate local talents and creativity, contribute to the beauty of our city, share a day of exploration of unique crafts and arts, color and texture, and a sense of a community working together to enrich each others life," reflects artist Nina Zak Laddon, the show organizer. This event will help pay for a public art project that is part of the esplanade beautification design. Two local artists are envisioning mosaic patterns on the bollards that are placed in front of the inclines to the beach. Be proud to have contributed to the beauty of your town by giving beauty to whomever you treasure.
