In what has become a north coast tradition, more than 30 juried artists and craftspeople exhibit original handmade artwork. The Mendocino Art Center’s galleries and class studios are transformed into a two-day holiday marketplace, providing residents and visitors a pleasant alternative to hectic, stressful mall shopping while supporting local and regional artists. Featured will be a wide array of unique, high quality artwork and gift items, including handmade jewelry, original paintings, photography, functional and decorative ceramics, fiber art and clothing, furniture, wood accessories, leather goods, baskets, handcrafted herbal skin care products and so much more.

From 10am to 4pm, warm yourself with a delicious assortment of festive food items – including Roundman's Sausage and Pepper sandwiches, Thanksgiving Soup by Harvest Market and Vegan Soup by Living Light Culinary Institute – and drinks, from beer and wine to hot chocolate and hot apple cider to sodas and juices.

The Mendocino Art Center's Gallery Shop is also open during the Thanksgiving Arts & Crafts Fair and offers great gift ideas created by MAC's member artists.
