Shop Locally this Year!

Holiday Artist Collective

Pauli Ochi has vision. She gets things done. So this year when she saw some open store fronts near her gallery—Ochi Gallery—she went into action. "I wanted a chance for local artists to gather together to sell their wares for the holidays," said Pauli. "I also wanted to give locals a chance to buy holiday gifts locally, from hard-working, creative artisans—there are going to be some really cool items for sale that are truly unique."

Pauli got together with Jack Bariteau owner of the Colonnade Building and Pauli's landlord at Ochi Gallery. "Jack was instrumental in helping us make this artist collective happen." said Pauli.

Anyone is welcome to the "Holiday Artist Collective". It's a free event for people to window shop or buy some holiday gifts. The Collective will be open from December 20-23 from 11am to 6pm at the Colonnade Building on 370 Walnut Avenue in between Farasha and Holli Jewelers. Here's a sneak peek of vendors and items for sale. And don't forget your checkbook or bring cash, as all artist don't accept credit cards—but many do!

Gabriel Ohlson's ceramic art is diverse. Clay is an ancient medium whose various methods and forms accentuarte and enhance everyday life.
