Giftable local art at Lemon Street Gallery Kenosha WI

Handmade gifts hold a sense of community and camaraderie during the holiday season. We are lucky to have Lemon Street Gallery to both shop at and create at all year round. During the month of December, the local gallery holds an annual holiday gift show called Artistree. The business features unique hand crafted items by area artists and has been a showcase event at Lemon Street for over 10 years. Gallery director, Beth Dary, says that their team scours art fairs all year to find talented artists to participate. 

When asked what her favorite artists or art pieces are, she responded by saying, “Well that’s like asking who’s your favorite child!” There is an extensive variety of giftable art for all visitors who stop in. Pottery, jewelry, fiber, and glass can be found among the shelves. If you’re looking for an experience, Lemon Street offers classes and gift certificates! 

One of my favorite parts of visiting Lemon Street is seeing Beth and others greet me as I walk in. You can feel the sincerity of the local business and how genuinely happy they are to have you there. Beth’s favorite part about the holiday season can be summed up in three parts. “One is seeing folks that find the perfect gift for someone they care about. The second is welcoming brand new visitors and hearing them say “ooh! Look at that!” And thirdly, publishing our class schedule for the new year. Classes make a terrific experiential gift!”

The Artistree Gift Show is open from through December 24th. Be sure to stop by more than once during December as their inventory is always changing!
