Come discover handmade and uncommon holiday gift items from hundreds of American artists at Guilford Art Center’s Holiday Expo event! Doors open October 28, 2022 - January 8, 2023.

Gift categories include ceramics, pottery, glass, jewelry, homewares, fiber art, ornaments, accessories, toys, specialty foods, stationery, leather goods and more.
This year features many new artists, both local and national, as well as new work by established artists. New items are added throughout the course of the show, so visitors will always have fresh shopping experiences every time they visit.
