On Friday, Dec. 5, the Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design and the Kranzberg Arts Center will partner to bring the work of their artists to the public in a special Holiday Pop-Up Shop. The shop will feature all handcrafted artwork for purchase, from ceramics to sculpture. The artists showcased are either Craft Alliance artists-in-residence (Grace Kubilius—wearable art; Norleen Nosri–functional ceramics; Audrey Peck–jewelry; and Robert Thomas Mullen—metals) or were recently featured in the Kranzberg exhibit “ALTrs” (Damon Davis–painting; Chad Elvins–video; and Black James–painting).
