Northside Holiday Art Sale

Riding on the tails of the Northside Summer Art Sale’s success; The Artist Group is hosting The Northside Holiday Art Sale December 4 in the auditorium of the North Presbyterian Church. The holiday sale will have everything you need for your holiday gift giving including artwork by really awesome local artists, really low cost to you (it is free), really interesting live music and really cool crafts for the kids to make while you shop. Over 35 artists will be participating and as always it is free to guests. 

Parking is available throughout the Northside business area on Hamilton Avenue as well as behind the North Presbyterian Church at 4222 Hamilton Avenue. 

The Northside Holiday Art Sale is sponsored by the Northside Business Association, North Presbyterian Church, CAIN: Churches Active in Northside and The Artist Group. The Holiday Art Sale began in 2003 and is a twin of the Northside Summer Art Sale usually held in June. The Artist Group is a group of Northside Artists interested in promoting the arts in Northside.
