It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Are you ready for Christmas? Whether you’re wrapping up the rest of your preparations or have begun last-minute plans, none of it is really worthwhile without the Christmas cheer. These fun art pieces will put a smile on your face just in time for the holidays. They may even become gifts for those on your list!
There is no doubt that White Christmases are a rare, cozy treat! Snowfall has its own interesting way of blanketing the world with natural coziness. This beautiful painting looks like a classic Christmas card. It’s as if the pause setting was turned on for the little world inside the frame.
In Pennsylvania Dutch culture, Belsnickel was a crotchety figure who would show up around Christmastime with a sack of treats in one hand for good children, and a switch to discipline naughty children. Fortunately, this Belsnickel seems to be much nicer and closely resembles Santa Claus! This time, old St. Nick has befriended the elks of the forest. Perhaps they will give him a ride back to the North Pole.
Doesn’t it look like this charming caroler could be playing somewhere in a Charles Dickens novel? You can almost hear “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” just by looking at her. Believe it or not, this Lladro sculpture is over twenty years old, and it’s in excellent condition. It’s a wonderful gift for the collector in your life.
These soldiers may not be home for Christmas but they are definitely making the most of it. One seems to be leading the others in a merry toast. Are they toasting for campaign success, or to their loved ones at home? Whatever their hopes may be, their joy is clear proof that it is indeed possible to celebrate Christmas without having things. In honor of our veterans, may all of our troops overseas come safely home.
This lovely vintage brooch is decked out in classic red and green crystals by the renowned costume jewelry designer Cristobal London. It’s a surprisingly large four-inch pin, making it an eye-catching statement piece for a scarf, hat, or anything else from your wardrobe for a Christmas party to remember!
There’s still time to shop at Seaside Art Gallery! There are plenty of treasures to find online and in-person at the Gallery. Have questions about shipping and handling? You can always contact the Gallery staff during business hours. From our family to yours, we hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
