"Tis the Season" Holiday Showcase Nov. 6 to Dec. 18


 “ ‘Tis the Season…”

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and you will probably see him hanging out at the Klamath Art Gallery for its annual Holiday Showcase from Sunday, November 6th through Sunday, December 18th. Browse and shop in a relaxed environment far from the madding crowds. Come early and return often to take advantage of a wide variety of creative and affordable gifts replenished regularly by our many artisans. You are sure to find unique Christmas ornaments, hand woven scarves and hats as well as jewelry, greeting cards and much, much more. Be sure to feast your eyes on the many paintings and photographs that will grace our walls – and perhaps yours!

Everyone is cordially invited to attend the reception on opening day, Sunday, November 6th from 12:00 to 4:00. Come savor tasty holiday treats and meet several of the artists. In addition, a prize drawing will be held every hour for a handcrafted item made and donated by members. On Sunday, December 4th, from 12:00 to 4:00 pm, the Gallery will host an Open House where you will have yet another opportunity to enjoy refreshments, more prize drawings and shopping.

Mark your calendar and get the word out.  Let the Klamath Art Gallery Holiday Showcase launch you into the spirit of the season! Your support will help keep our legacy alive as being of one of the oldest organizations of its kind in Oregon (since 1946 and celebrating its 70th anniversary this year). We’ll see you there! Mark your calendars for this exceptional exhibit – you won’t want to miss it!

About the Klamath Art Association and Gallery

Located in Klamath Falls Oregon at 120 Riverside Drive, the Klamath Art Association Gallery showcases a different artist or photographer nearly every month in a cozy intimate gallery space that is a delight for gallery goers. A few months per year are dedicated to group shows. The gallery not only shows work from local artists and photographers, but also hosts shows by artists from outside the region. Admission is free. From time to time KAA offers instructional classes that are open to the public, as are all of our events.  The non-profit member supported Klamath Art Association averages 140 members. 

KAA is the oldest organization of its kind in Oregon and was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1946. The Gallery is open from 12-4 PM Thursdays thru Mondays. During the months of June through September, our membership participated in the community 3rd Thursday Art Walks.
