Brickworks Gallery: Artwork Gift Ideas
December 20, 2017
Art makes a great gift because it is something a person can live and grow with. It may take on new and different meanings over time, it may shape how a person designs their space, and it may inspire lively conversations. Unlike pieces made on a macro scale by some impersonal home goods manufacturer, a handmade vase, an oil or acrylic painting, or a blown glass piece comes from a place of deep aesthetic consideration. Also unlike a macro-made piece, a work of art from Brickworks Gallery will have a name attached to it. So not only can you excite someone with the gift of a new work that provokes thoughtful consideration, but you will be directly contributing to the continuation of a talented artist’s career.
