Newly formed Harris Collective launches first annual Christmas holiday show and sale

The holidays are here and the Elora Centre for the Arts is giving visitors the chance to get this year’s Christmas shopping done early.

The newly formed Harris Collective, a group of member artists, is hosting its opening show and sale on Dec. 5 and 6.

The collective will feature a variety of paintings, fibre art, glass, encaustic, and other unique pieces suitable for gifts for that special person.

The Harris Collective is a member driven, juried art collective where artists can showcase their work year round.

The opening show and sale is a unique opportunity to see work by many artists from in and outside the community under one roof.

The event will feature original work by more than 20 artists, as well as some treats and refreshments.

“It’s a unique opportunity to see some wonderful artistic talent and take home some great pieces for your friends and family for the holidays,” said Elora Centre for the Arts  general manager Arlene Saunders.

The Harris Collective will be exhibiting its work year round in the Harris Room on the ground floor at the Elora Centre for the Arts with several special shows and events scheduled throughout the year.

“The Opening Show and Sale is a wonderful opportunity to get a sneak peak at what the collective has to offer,” said Saunders, adding there will be unframed work available as well.

The Harris Collective Show and Sale runs from 10am to 4pm on Dec. 5 and 6 at the Elora Centre for the Arts. Admission is free.
