The Art Barn School of Art is rolling out its third annual Holiday Gift Gallery to let people shop local.

A nonprofit art education center, located in a repurposed barn at 695 N 400 E in Valparaiso, will offer many unique gifts made by local artists and artisans.

“Starting Nov. 13, Art Barn School of Art will overflow with small items perfect for holiday giving,” Executive Director Amy Davis Navardauskas said. “During our third annual Holiday Gift Gallery, visitors will find works of fine art and fine craft at price points designed for every budget.

Sometimes the most cherished gifts are the ones you can’t find elsewhere — original artworks and handmade crafts. Here are some of the best places to find everything from textiles to toys to salad bowls to paintings, made by local, regional, and national artists.

CRAFTBOSTON HOLIDAY ONLINE The Society of Arts + Crafts’ annual blowout returns online this year. Enjoy artist demos in woodworking, glassblowing, and more from your living room, or pick up gifts such as cutting boards, bangles, mugs, and other handcrafted items by regional and national artists. This year, the event extends through January, so once the holiday frenzy has passed, you can slow down with a knitting workshop or pick up goodies for yourself. Through Jan. 30.

In July, the city of Birmingham launched the Birmingham View Photo Challenge— a competition calling for photographs that captured the people, landmarks and events of Birmingham as a tribute to the city’s upcoming 150th anniversary.

Now, the winning photographs from that competition are on view in a new exhibit at the Birmingham Museum of Art.

On view until January 9, 2022, the works are currently on display in the paneled gallery off the first floor of the museum’s Bohorfoush hallway.

The challenge asked participants to submit photos in four distinct categories: events in Birmingham, cityscapes and landscapes, Birmingham landmarks, and people. The photos had to be taken in Birmingham between 2019 and 2021 with either a cell phone or professional camera.
