In the Galleries in December and January
Our Holiday Season here at the Guild has always been a great success thanks to our members who participate. All our galleries will be ablaze with holiday spirit. Our artists and crafters will fill the walls and tables with their offerings. This year we are requesting that the studio display larger paintings priced to sell.
Galleries I & II will display gifts under $50.00, sure to please all buyers. There will be handcrafted gift items, seasonal and non-seasonal. Our Gift Shop, as always, will shine with wonderful artful gifts. The receiving of this work will start Nov. 28, 29, & 30.
Our opening reception is Saturday December 2, 10-4. There will be light refreshments. Come and celebrate the Season with your good friends here at the Guild and do a little gift shopping. The holiday art will remain up until January 31st.

Artist Volunteers visit at the bedside to draw for the patient while having a conversation or help them to draw some pictures of their own. Artists are provided with art materials for drawing or painting. It is a happy distraction for those undergoing treatments. This time together is meaningful in so many ways.
If you can spend a few hours a week helping to make someone’s day brighter through the experience of art, please call Traci Barbieri 732.557.8000 x11303.
Be aware that our general meetings are held at 7 PM on the 4th Wednesday of most months, prior to the scheduled demonstrations. The meetings are brief and full of information about future guild events and offer an opportunity for new members to become involved.
Attention All Artists
If you plan on dropping off new work for the Gift Shop PLEASE notify Kath Gregitis first. Kath will then come in to inventory your work into the book.
PARKING AT THE GUILD
We would like to remind our Members and those who come as guests, to keep in mind you are parking in a residential area of Island Heights. Please do not block driveways or park in yellow
