Gifts are going to be tough this year. Maybe you still want to support local businesses and creators, but you’re struggling with the prospect of spending an entire day (or three) combing small stores with your mask on and your hand sanitizer on constant standby. The Spokane Art School has the perfect solution. Like every year, they’re hosting their annual Ornament and Small Work Show. The gallery is open for limited, in-person viewing, and all of the pieces are available for purchase online. The collection features household Spokane names like Megan Perkins, known for her local landmark watercolors, and artisan tree ornaments from Alice Nelson and Kris Howell, among many other local treasures.
Through Dec. 19, open for in-person viewing Fri-Sat from 10 am-5 pm • Spokane Art School • 811 W. Garland Ave. • spokaneartschool.net
