Gifted: D’Art Center Holiday Sale

The holidays are coming! The d’Art Center will host its annual art sale in our spacious, well-lit Harbor Group International Gallery at our location at Duke Grace. The dates for the show are November 28 through December 30, with a reception on Saturday, December 2 from 2:00-5:00pm. Gifted is a vendor- style display of original works for sale in the Main Gallery, patrons can purchase a wide variety of gifts created by professional artists.

Last year’s display featured ceramics, jewelry, silk-painted scarves, paintings, and more. This sale is intended to highlight the works of Hampton Roads artists, but we will selectively consider other submissions. All works included must be original high quality works created by the artist. For this sale, we prefer works valued at $200 or under, but will consider high priced works as well. Functional works like jewelry or pottery are popular as gifts, and sold well last year, but all types of art will be considered. Acceptance is determined by the d’Art Center staff and all decisions are final. Accepted artists will receive the equivalent of a full or half standard table worth of space. Full tables are 6’ x 3’ or equivalent sized set up; half tables are 3’ x 3’ or equivalent sized set ups. 

All payments for sales are accepted by the d’Art Center. The Center retains a 40% commission on all sales. Artists will receive a payment from the d’Art Center for works sold after the sale closes. Please click the link bellow to learn more about Gifted and the application process!
