“Uncommon Offerings”

Copper Rose. By Idelle Okman Tyzbir

We are all grateful this holiday season that Topanga Canyon was spared the devastating fires in November.

We feel blessed to be able to open our doors in the spirit of the history and tradition that has created this time of year that we celebrate with gifts, not because we have to but because we want to acknowledge those close to us. That’s the kind of giving the artists of Topanga Canyon Gallery had in mind when they created the work for this holiday show of “Uncommon Offerings.”

This is the gallery’s once-a-year celebration where each artist offers many favorite pieces, small and large, all unique with each piece, from fine photography to holiday ornaments, handcrafted by a member artist.

This year the many possibilities for you to choose from include beautiful copper roses for the naturalist; embellished glass drinking straws for the environmentalist; plein air paintings of the local area for those who love Southern California’s landscapes; surf art for the beach enthusiast; glass sculptures for the collector; hand-painted silk scarves; tiny ceramic bowls to hold everything from rings to salt, even dreams; greeting cards; poetry books; and jewelry. Fine art works are also on display with contemporary and traditional oils, watercolor, mixed media, and framed Limited Edition fine art photography.

What better way to celebrate than by ordering landscape photographer Don Holtz’s book, “Topanga Spirit,” replete with stunning photographs of Topanga. With your purchase comes a bonus of a 10-x-15-inch print, signed by Holtz.

Note: Books are “on demand” from the publisher. To be in time for Christmas, order it at the Holiday Party on December 1, but no later than December 4.
