ArtsWestchester presents a happy hour pop-up shopping experience in its gallery from 6-8:30pm on December 20 to help visitors through the mid-week slump. As part of its monthly “Get Over the Hump” Wednesday series, guests are invited to enjoy a glass of wine and do some last-minute holiday shopping for one-of-a-kind gifts by four local designers. Matt Gualco reinterprets well-known written works and lyrics onto posters. Tatjana Kunst’s handmade utilitarian ceramic pieces, such as stoneware candles, jewelry and planters, are often decorated with motifs and carvings inspired by the natural world. Jody Lee will display glass homeware items, such as coasters, ornaments and plates, which incorporate marine- and nature-inspired details. Elena Rosenberg’s hand-knit and crocheted accessories and clothing are original designs made almost exclusively with natural materials. Guests can also view the contemporary artworks in ArtsWestchester’s Give Us The Vote exhibition, a timely show about the state of voting rights in America today.
