Holiday Gifts from the Morning Glory Gallery
Holiday shopping could not be easier than making your selection from the Morning Glory Gallery! Unique, one-of-a-kind fine crafts are the perfect gift and your purchase supports talented artisans throughout Wisconsin and the Midwest. A multitude of choices includes hand-painted silk scarves, buttery leather handbags, garden art and sculpture, colorful handblown glass, jewelry and vessels made from thinly sliced fruits and vegetables, and earrings made from recycled water bottles. The Gallery is also a source for the popular City Tins!
The Morning Glory Gallery features contemporary, handmade fine crafts created by members of the Wisconsin Designer Crafts Council. More than 50 artists working in ceramics, fiber, jewelry, leather, photography, glass, sculpture, wood and mixed media are represented in the gallery’s handsome space inside the lobby of the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Gallery customers have come to appreciate the beauty of handmade, one-of-a-kind fine crafts and enjoy supporting local artists. The Gallery is open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 12-6 p.m. and during all evening and weekend shows in Uihlein Hall. The Gallery also participates in each of Milwaukee’s popular Gallery Night and Day events. The Gallery showcases a different artist on each of these occasions, and the artist is usually present in the Gallery on Friday night.
The Morning Glory Gallery is an extension of the longstanding partnership between the Wisconsin Designer Crafts Council and the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts. Each year WDCC stages its popular Morning Glory Fine Craft Fair the second full weekend in August on the outdoor grounds of the Marcus Center. Shoppers can now purchase fine craft work from the same talented artists year-round in the Gallery. For those looking for original fine craft work by a Wisconsin artist, a unique gift, or a handsome home furnishing, you will find beautiful choices to enhance your decor and lifestyle at the Morning Glory Gallery.
