This holiday season, “The Pleasure of Gift Giving” is a limited exhibition and craft marketplace by ArtPort Kingston offering encounters with the RIGHT GIFT – something uniquely yours to give, including artworks, multiples, handmade objects, silly stuff, strange souvenirs, small Drawings, and more.
From fun to function, this marketplace of the one-of-a-kind is here for you to discover your offering for this year, waiting to be spread into a world of friends, lovers, beloveds, strangers, family members, or to keep for yourself, because this is the season for SELF-LOVE, too.For this exhibition, the Cornell Steamboat Building will become a wonderland marketplace, reminiscent of time-old European, outdoor holiday markets. Twinkling lights will deck the halls. Steaming mulled-wine, hot cider and cocoa will be served.
All the different holidays - Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, the Solstice - come together as reasons to come together, all ritual reminders pointing towards more gratitude and connection.
Featured Artists: Michael Lokensgaard, Arielle Toelke, Julie Hedrick, Jacinta Bunnell, Erica Hauser, Dylan Assael, Christin Ripley, Undine Brod, Lilah Friedland, Olga Joan, Buddy Valentine, Macoon, Mokshini, Cocorau, and others.
