The holiday season presents no better time to support our artists. Each year, Gallery 464 rallies together “Gifted Artists” that create original works of art, which are as fun to shop for as they are to receive. The Holiday Art Market also features high-quality reproductions, hand made jewelry, crafts, ceramics, etc., all for sale at affordable prices. Gifted has become one of Gallery 464’s premiere events – the artisanal items that can be found are wide-ranging, numerous, locally made, and super unique.
Featured artists include Bill Battaglia, Rob Benigno, Jamie Combes, Tom Coyne, Jessica Farry, Mark Freeland, Johnny Joo, Candace Keegan, Esther Levinton, Sean Madden, Chris Main, Diane Mencheti, Eileen Pleasure, Shasti O’Leary Soudant, David Tarsa, Vintango, Thomas Webb, and Marcus L. Wise.
This year’s highlighted items include Buffalo Architecture coloring books by Dana Saylor and Jon Furman, stained glass Christmas tree ornaments by Jennifer Page, functional and decorative ceramics by Greg Palombo, 3-d printed buffalo’s and buffalo-shaped cookie-cutters by Rob Peters, Buffalo wrapping paper from Mickey Harmon, unisex rings made from shotgun shells by Deborah Petronio, and Buffalo nickel necklaces by Melissa Coletti.
Second floor of the gallery features open studios, and artwork to view from studio residents Alicia Malik, Ryan Mis, Jaime Schmidt, and CJ Szatkowski.
