Add to that some exceptionally decorated themed trees and a selection of hard-to-find gifts with something for just about everyone, and you begin to get the idea of what this much-anticipated holiday tradition is all about.

Tradition has it, for this exhibit only, that purchases can go home with you. See a painting you want… take it off the wall. Like those hand-made ornaments on that tree, grab them and take them to a cashier! This exhibit traditionally opens the same week as Art Harvest, the long-standing art fair hosted adjacent to the Dunedin Fine Art Center by the Junior League of Dunedin/Clearwater. The sheer numbers involved make for a joyous yearly kick-off of the holiday season.
