HOLIDAY HOURS, GIFT IDEAS and Other great things!

Hello everyone! Just a quick little blog to say THANK YOU for shopping at Argyle Fine Art and shopping LOCAL for many of you too!  If you are still looking for a special gift, card, jewellery, ceramic work or more..make sure to pop by the gallery. We even received NEW works today, so the newness never ends!

We are open TODAY (Saturday) and will have cider and cookies for you to sip and munch and lots of great works to explore! We'll take a break on Sunday but we'll be open again on MONDAY from 10-5:30pm and TUESDAY from 10-2:30pm.

We have something for everyone on your list...old and young alike! Guaranteed! For the kids on your list, or the kids at heart, consider Ed Beals's FOLDed's...paper craft you cut, fold and assemble. Ed has designed many to choose from, but this year he added a Robot Reindeer to the fleet!  If you purchase a FOLDed, you will also  have a chance to WIN another FOLDed by visiting the GIANT SANTA BOT in store....FOLDed's are great activities for all ages and can also act as a special card and gift all in one!

 At the beginning of the year, we hosted a show simply called CAT if you have any cat people on your list, we still have some lovely works remaining from that show that would love to find that purrrrrfect home for the holidays! Here are a few samples below...

Ooops....I almost the Veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery beginning of the year, we hosted our annual Pre-Shrunk show...where we feature miniature works by over 300 artists. The works are all priced the same and all measure 4" x 5". We are selling vouchers for this years show...for just $150 ($175 value!) plus you get ahead of the line, first picks! and a special reception while viewing. These make great gifts.  Here's a little beauty from last years show by Vaughn Gray. It's called "Thinking about Christmas"  Today and until Christmas, it's $95!

Throughout the year we are always receiving new works from our gallery artists and discovering new artists too! Did you know that every Thursday, we switch up the entire gallery and the gallery windows?  This is to make sure you always have a different experience when you visit the gallery and so all of our artists get shown!

Here are a few other lovelies from this year, that remain unsold but would look lovely under any tree or hung on any wall. You see all of our shows online now at our website at

Remember, from now  until December 24th (we close at 2pm that day) we will accept food donations and give you 15% off your art purchase. Happy Holidays everyone!
