The Gallery of Gifts by the Wednesday Morning Artists and Friends is our 6-week year-end exhibit and sale at the Dorchester Center for the Arts in Cambridge MD that we have been doing since 2015. Each year we invite some of our artist friends to join us, making this is a really rich and full show made up of one-of-a-kind items sized and priced for gift-giving.

Every year, we participate in Showcase, a fundraiser sponsored by the Dorchester Center for the Arts. Here you see the Mayor of the city dressed in a paper hat of the type that we helped visitors to create. We actually did this for two different years because it was so popular.
Leggett Gallery, a project of Chesapeake College's Cambridge, MD campus, invited us to exhibit twice in 2017. This space is a large, open hallway and we filled both sides of it with our art.
For many years, we have placed art in the front windows of the William T. Hunt Insurance Agency on Race Street in Cambridge, MD. We are grateful to Mr. Hunt. This is the pointilism oil painting of Susan Dickinson.
The Candleberry Gallery in St. Michaels, MD, invited our exhibit and sale in 2017. Here's a look at a very small piece of it. This is the sculpture of Peg McCormack.
The Le Hatchery in Easton MD invited us to exhibit and sell during 2015. It was a big show and here you see a small part of it.
Snowflakes were everywhere at the arts center for our 2014 December Opening Night. There were thousands of them on the walls, the ceilings, the windows, and the trees. Truly, they were a sight to behold! And we handmade each and everyone one of them.
In concert with the Dorchester Garden Club's exhibit at the Dorchester Center for the Arts, we created painted Adirondak chairs in 2014. Nice, eh??
Here in December of 2013, we put on a spectacular Opening Night, complete with a scroll invitation, piles and piles of gifts, and a great Second Saturday reception.

This is a July, 2013, Opening Night event. The focus was an impressive collection of Inuit art. Our event included a speaker from the Smithsonian, food that mimicked Arctic foods, and having our guests build inuksuks, stone markers used by the Inuits.
We had two spectacular shows at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Resort in Cambridge, MD, in 2012. We were invited by a couple of conventions that were being held in the hotel.
Here's one of our younger admirers. She's entranced by the holiday singers on the stairs at the Dorchester Center for the Arts in Cambridge, MD on a Second Saturday in 2008
