WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.- Just in time for Mother's Day comes a seasonal makeover of The Shop at ArtsWestchester.
The gift shop, in the heart of White Plains, is home to the handmade art and craft items of more than 20 artists and makers from the Hudson Valley and New York City. Proceeds from the Shop’s sales benefit the participating artists, as well as ArtsWestchester’s mission of supporting the arts in Westchester County.
“Our gallery highlights the talented artists working in and around Westchester, and The Shop at ArtsWestchester is a destination for locally-produced upscale yet affordable product," said ArtsWestchester CEO Janet Langsam. "A purchase at the shop is a great way to support individual local artists and small businesses in our area.”
Among the items in stock: jewelry, ceramics, locally-made skincare products, art prints and art-to-wear fashions. Also on display are CDs from local musicians and books by local authors.
A selection of suggested Mother’s Day gifts include:
- Emily & Eden, the jewelry collection of designer and maker Shannon Chomanczuk, which captures themes of motherhood and love with sterling silver and gemstone necklaces and earrings.
- Greeting cards by Cindy LaColla with their Mother’s Day sentiments and whimsical original illustrations.
- Patty Villanova’s colorful hand-painted silk scarves.
“The Shop hours coincide with ArtsWestchester’s gallery hours, and with the current SHE: Deconstructing Female Identity exhibition on view, making now the perfect time to visit the Shop and the show," said Scarsdale-based artist and arts advocate Elena Rosenberg, who serves as advisor to the Shop.
The gallery, at 31 Mamaroneck Avenue, is free and open to the public.
Shop hours are Tuesday to Friday, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.and Saturday, 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit www.artsw.org/giftshop or call (914) 428-4220 x331.
