Their popular Gallery Shop has a great selection of gifts too, including local handmade pottery, jewelry, woodcraft, glass art, textiles, books, exhibition catalogues, magazines, posters, art cards, home goods, stationery, puzzles, children’s games and toys and a beautiful selection of holiday ornaments and decorations.

The Gallery Shop works with local artists and artisans to source many of the products available. The shop is located at the AGGV entrance and does not require an entrance fee to browse or purchase.

You can also give the gift of art and culture all year long with an AGGV membership for a special person or people in your life this holiday season. For more information visit Gift of Membership.
