Bidding proceeds go towards the Show + Sale program and the AUArts Boost-a-Student Fund.
Browse through a wide selection of framed and canvassed original artwork, including paintings, drawings, and more. This is the spot to find the perfect artwork for that niche by the stairs. Great for all budgets large or small.
Join us at The Boutique, where you will find handcrafted jewelry and stylish fashion statements. Our jewelry and fibre artists only use the highest quality materials, and their artwork is sure to turn heads at your next Christmas party. As a bonus, you'll get to meet the artists behind the work and learn more about their processes.
Print Avenue is back and better than ever! Prints have a special charm and make for great gifts. If you're looking for holiday cards, zines, or stickers, head to The Gift Box.
