Ruston Artisans Gallery, announces multi exhibition 'The Gift of Art', featuring works from over 50 artists and artisans with more than 400 pieces of visual art and artisan products. Exhibition opens October 28, 2020, and an Artist Reception will be held on November 5, 2020, from 5:00 p.m. through 8:00 p.m., in conjunction with the downtown Ruston “Shop and Stroll.” Refreshments will be served, and entertainment by Bruce Gay will be provided.

It has been a difficult year for everyone in our communities. This has been true for our artists as well. They have had nowhere to showcase their work and few art markets to sell in. To address this, we opened our doors and invited local artists to take a place in our gallery and create that marketplace. We now invite you to stop in, support your local community and local artists, and celebrate the holidays with us.

The artistry spans from artworks to merchandise items, including art gift sets; artistic maps and drawings; books; CD’s; clothing and accessories; cheese boards; commission works; essential scents; garden flags; glassware/cups; hand and grocery bags; handmade teddy’s; home goods; jewelry; luxurious bath products; magnets; masks; note cards and pads; ornaments; painting; paper works; pens; photography; naturally dyed silk pillows; pottery; prints; puzzles; sculptures; stickers; wall and desk plaques; woodworking; and wood and concrete furniture. More items are being added throughout the holidays.

'The Gift of Art' will be on display through January 4, 2021.
