The Farmington Valley Arts Center, Avon, CT which boasts 20 artist studios, two galleries and classroom space has also been known for carrying wonderful holiday gifts made by fine artists. Each year, FVAC celebrates Candlelight season which is a series of festive events beginning with an opening on November, 22, 2013 at 5:00-9:00pm. 

In the Esther Drezner Gallery and Gift Shop you will find wearable art, fine crafted jewelry, photography, functional pottery and ceramics, hand painted silk scarves, Judaica by Gary Rosenthal, original artwork, home decor, glassware and more. Under the direction of Sandy Buerkler, a new gift shop manager this holiday season, the Drezner GIft Gallery has a new look and new artisans. 

Sandy, originally from Switzerland has added a very special touch to the Drezner gallery, one of two galleries at FVAC. In the larger Fisher Gallery you will find a sculpture show which surrounds a magnificient shimmery kinetic mobile sculpture by artist Robin Protz. This installation is a must see for both adults and children. Mixed media artwork by artists is also on display. 

This year visit a lovely Tea Room on the second floor with a gallery of small works by FVAC artists in additon to visiting all the other artist open studios (two floors) with lots of art, sculpture, textiles, photography, jewelry, etc.
