Don’t settle for gifting socks to your loved ones this holiday season—surprise them with handcrafted, one-of-a-kind pieces of art and other goodies found at the 16th annual Holiday Gift Gallery at the Healdsburg Center for the Arts. Over 30 regional artists participate in the gallery show, offering gift-appropriate works in media ranging from paintings, photography, ceramics, glass, wood and other textiles. Opening in conjunction with the Healdsburg Downtown Holiday Party, in which several merchants around the plaza open late with lighted displays and Santa hangs out in the plaza’s gazebo, the HCA’s Gift Gallery opens with a reception on Friday, Nov. 24, at 130 Plaza St., Healdsburg. 5pm.
