This holiday season, you’ll love the spirit of Ellicottville’s annual Christmas Stroll even more with the addition of the Holiday Art Crawl.

The event, organized by area artist Darlene Allen, will give “crawlers” the chance to meet and learn about the work of a variety of talented local artists and artisans on December 6 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.  Featured artists will display everything from fiber art and stained glass to paintings, ceramics and unique photography. You’ll also be able to collect some beautiful treasures and one-of-a-kind gifts not available anywhere else.

To make the event even more enjoyable, Ellicottville’s own Bob McCarthy will serve as your amiable hay ride shuttle driver between the six venues, including St. John’s Episcopal Church, the Mill Street Gallery, Allen’s home at 11 Rockwell Ave., Katy’s Cafe, Nouriche Boutique and the Nannen Arboretum.

Plus, when you arrive at each venue, be sure to drop your name in collection boxes to win original art donated by the artists.

Hay ride shuttle tickets are free but required. Pick them up at St. John’s Episcopal Church and get ready for a great time!
