Holiday Ornament Collection 2011

Putting up a new exhibit in The Art League Gallery is always a joyous affair, but an even more festive sort of hanging took place today as the Holiday Ornament Collection arrived, along with branches to hang it on. Popular for holiday gift-giving, the collection was hung with care, despite the gallery’s lack of a chimney.

With over 100 unique, handcrafted ornaments for sale, The Art League’s tree is bursting with holiday cheer. Pat Miller, co-owner of the Alexandria store A Show of Hands and chairperson of the Alexandria Commission for the Arts, judged for prizes.

The Holiday Ornament Collection will be in The Art League Gallery through January 2.

Opaque Blue Swirl, a work in mouth-blown glass by Sally Ann Baynard, won best in show.
