This year, we are opening the vaults of the CE collection and offering the public the opportunity to shop for thousands of exceptional and affordable artworks by artists with developmental disabilities. This salon-style shopping experience includes rare and exhibited framed paintings, drawings and multimedia artwork, functional and decorative ceramic sculptures, unique fiber art and our collection of popular digital prints. As always, 50% of original art sales go directly to the artist, supporting their well-being and independence. In the spirit of remembrance and reflection, the team at CE is dedicating a Wall of Honor in the gallery to rare artwork by artists who have recently passed away. Artwork by fan favorites such as Antonio Benjamin, Dan Michiels and Sara O’Sullivan will be on display and available for sale to the public. Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to collect work by our inspiring canon of artists and learn about the legacy of Creativity Explored. The Holiday Art Shop includes a collection of CE art products that make perfect stocking stuffers – a limited-edition Thomas Pringle Pin-Up Model 2020 Calendar, new Victorian House keychains by Kevin Roach, artful apparel, our popular enamel pins, wrapping paper, greetings cards, art kits and more! Plus, shop a curated selection of giftable products by VIDA – choose from luxurious scarves, decorative candles and glass trays emblazoned with artwork by five CE artists. Limited quantities available. Get a headstart on your holiday shopping! Explore the entire VIDA x Creativity Explored Collection online here.
