HOLIDAY ART AND GIFTING EVENT
At the Produce Building on N Fifth
901 North Fifth St, Minneapolis 55401

Hoorah! It’s time to put our annual Holiday Art & Gifting Event in your calendar!

We love getting into the holiday vibe (and a little party) so this season we are teaming up again with our dear neighbors UMEI and Spring Finn & Co. for a building-wide event. If you’ve attended this before, you’ll know that this is one not to be missed!

As always, we will have one-of-a-kind giftable arts that are specially curated to delight and be loved by you and yours.

F E A T U R I N G
This year we will have an artful selection of smaller pieces, such as Kei Gratton’s fascinating tarot paintings besides her decks of Tarot cards, PLUS be one of the lucky few to have your Tarot read by Kei herself! There will be Minnesotan-made wax and resin jewelry and sculptures by Silvana Lacreta Ravena as well as her batik silk scarves. Wood fired stoneware serving dishes by Samuel Johnson are ready to grace the table, while giftable paintings by Jim Hillegass will be available with his acrylic minis and maxis on paper… plus much more!

HOLIDAY MARKET ON NORTH FIFTH
Saturday 23rd 4-8pm

It’s always a party with our fabulous neighbors, UMEI and Spring Finn & Co., who will also be offering a tailored selection of vendors alongside their own wide range of unique products.

GOLDFINCH is a collection of woven and knit pieces for the home and to wear, ranging from the luxurious to the homespun and born of a deep appreciation for ancient textile techniques, the hand-made process and modern technology. They work only with natural fibers—wool, yak, linen, cotton and cashmere—and are conscientious about the environmental impact of their products. They design the collection in their Minneapolis studio while their artisan partners work in the inspiring valleys of Kathmandu, Nepal and Oaxaca, Mexico to produce each piece with their expert skils and evidence of their deft hands. Whether you treat yourself, your home or a friend to a new piece from Goldfinch, they believe its lasting beauty will be enjoyed for years to come.
Yen Chee designs are a modern and sophisticated collection of hand-crafted jewelry. Comprised of high-quality materials like 14k gold-fill, sterling silver, quartz, onyx, and other high-vibrational stones, these contemporary works of art are distinct in design and embody the spiritual essence of beauty and harmony. All the jewelry is created in small batches by Yen in her jewelry studio in Golden Valley, MN, and infused with love and the most positive intentions.
Anna Chambers-Goldberg started ACG in 2013. This clothing line is an extension of her lifelong passion for sewing, with her fine art training contributing greatly to her process and inspiration.

All pieces in this collection are made by hand in Minneapolis, MN. Materials are chosen for their superb texture and quality, and are sometimes up-cycled or vintage. This results in high-quality, very limited editions, including one-of-a-kind pieces. They believe this adds originality and integrity to the designs.

ACG is committed to the future of ethical fashion. They keep their waste to an absolute minimum, sourcing their fabrics as carefully as possible and saving their fabric scraps to be remade into usable textiles.
