Add Oracle’s annual Gifts and Art Market to your list of holiday shopping destinations for unique, high-quality art and craftwork.

The market, featuring 20 professional artists and artisans, opens Friday, Nov. 23, and runs every Wednesday through Sunday until Dec. 23 at 1880 W. American Avenue in Oracle from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

New, original, classic and contemporary work will include jewelry, oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, fine-art photographs, pastel drawings, ceramic and clay sculpture, painted furniture and metal garden art, hand-turned wood, painted steel and wire sculpture, papier-mache vessels, handcrafted candles, knitwear and weavings and one-of-a-kind artist-made books.

A large selection of art cards also will be available.

This is the sixth year for the holiday market, and the public is invited to attend a special Meet the Artists Evening with wine and hors d’oeuvres on Saturday, Dec. 1 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Enjoy a day trip to the high desert, shop, see the art and have lunch or dinner at one of our local restaurants. The show is free, and the building is handicapped accessible.

Oracle is 35 miles northeast of Tucson on Highway 77 at mile marker 100. The gallery is just off the highway, across from DeMarco’s Restaurant. For information call 520 896-2079 or 520 896-2234 or visit the Oracle town website OracleTown.com.
