Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the MACK Artisans Guild & Gallery Shop
SHOP HOURS: Monday - Saturday / 10:00 - 4:00
Complimenting the theme of the MACK (McCormick Arts Council at the Keturah) being the cultural center of the community, the Artisan Guild Gallery Shop offers a wealth of delightful items for your perusal.
The Artisans Guild and Gallery Shop were established in August of 2005. They have since grown to 38 members with products on display. Even though it’s only September, the holidays will be here before you know it. Gold Rush days would be a great time to come to the shop and start making your gift lists. Later in the fall, many of our artisans will bring in specific Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas items. Be sure to visit often so you won’t miss out on all the wonderful offerings of this talented group!
Wooden items include keepsake boxes that combine unusual grains and wood tones, beautifully detailed birdhouses and cleverly carved walking sticks. Four potters offer a variety of styles and colors featuring vases of all sizes, serving dishes, dip chillers and warmers, yarn bowls, mugs, sugar and creamer sets, spoon rests and honey pots. Jewelry is offered in many mediums. Sterling silver necklaces and earrings, birthstone stretch rings, enamelware, dichroic glass, and colorful leather bracelets with magnetic clasps and and unique slides. Other pieces incorporate semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls, and 14 karat wires and beads.
Textiles include purses and totes of many sizes and fabrics. Choose from bags with reversible covers, pockets inside and out, with button, snap, and zipper closures. For the golfer there are tapestry golf patterned purses, shoe bags and cart seat covers. You will also find a stunning array of scarves, pillows, quilts, jackets, aprons, wine bags and items for babies and children. Guest towels, napkins and totes featuring McCormick logos and area team insignias are popular with tourists and residents alike.
Beveled glass candle holders, stained glass sun catchers and kaleidoscopes make wonderful gifts. We also have soaps and lotions made from natural ingredients as well as pine needle and reed baskets. An inviting collection of button art bracelets and brooches are offered. The bracelets combine various styles and colors of beads and leather cords with buttons. All the brooches have a bail so they can also be worn on a cord or chain as a necklace.
A variety of framed art and photography is displayed around the shop. Another recent addition is a group of yard art pieces made from recycled plates and glassware to brighten up your landscape and plantings. Besides the normal variety of greeting cards you will also find notecards featuring photographs, drawings, paintings or initials. Postcards with a mélange of McCormick landmarks and books for children and adults, are also available. Our most recent member has brought in a wonderful collection of cultural dolls that are a “must see”.
Many of our artisans do custom work and are most willing to create that special something you have in mind. They can work from a picture or a drawing and will monogram items as well. Staffed by local artists and volunteers, the shop is open Monday through Saturday from 10 until 4. Cash, checks and credit or debit cards are accepted. So come see us, shop local and support the arts your community!
