  • This year marks the 50th Anniversary of South County Art Association’s Annual Holiday Pottery and Art Sale. Postponed because of the pandemic last year, they're celebrating this milestone by giving their members a chance to sell their art. They are also extending a special invitation to artists who have participated in the sale from past years. The variety of styles, number of participating artists, and unique items for sale lends to a variety of extraordinary artwork that will be available there. Each year the dedicated staff and volunteers transform the historic Helme House Gallery into a dazzling holiday gift store, selling the work of more than 90 artist members. The artists represented range from talented hobbyists to seasoned professionals and come from all over the state of Rhode Island. Thousands of visitors visit the sale annually to shop for one-of-a-kind items to be given as gifts or a present for themselves. The Holiday Sale has something for everyone; handmade pottery, cards, small framed prints, paintings, jewelry, ornaments, stocking stuffers, woodwork and as well as their famous mug wall. SCAA keeps the atmosphere homespun with a touch of fun. Buy a handmade ceramic mug and get your 'mug shot’ taken! Volunteers are on hand to tell you about the artists and how they created their work. Their mission is to convey that each item being sold is handcrafted with love by a local artist. To emphasize this message, SCAA will be holding a special public shopping event called "Meet the Artists" on December 9th from 6-8pm. The sale opens on Black Friday, November 26 and runs until Sunday, December 19. The hours are Wednesdays-Sundays from 10am–6pm. SCAA is a non-profit arts organization, established in 1929, with deep roots in the community providing opportunities for everyone to learn, share and create art. They are located at 2587 Kingstown Road in historic Kingston village, three doors east of the URI entrance. Dates of Sale: November 26 – December 19 Hours of Operation: Wednesdays – Sundays, 10:00am – 6:00pm Meet the Artists and extended shopping hours Thursday, 12/9 from 6 to 8 pm Address: 2587 Kingstown Road/Rte 138, Kingston RI 02881 (Just east of Upper College Road at URI) Website: Contact: Kathleen Carland, Executive Director Jen Ferry, Associate Director (401) 783-2195 office or (401) 408-0616 Kathleen's cell phone
