This is DC Arts Studios festive holiday tradition when over thirty of our artists will open their doors to the public. Purchase original artwork and handmade gifts directly from the artists and artisans themselves — it’s a perfect opportunity to find one-of-a-kind gifts for holiday giving. Artwork and gifts will include photography, paintings, mixed media, fiber art, sculpture, weaving, jewelry, and much more.

Event highlights:

  • Have a unique photo taken with an Afghan box camera, a kamra-e-faoree (instant camera): https://www.facebook.com/events/290793931427900/
