There's no better gift for your mom than a local, handmade piece of art or jewelry. It's unique, it's lasting, and she'll know you put thought into choosing something special. Here are favorites from Art Mecca staff and artists:
"A sweet watercolor by Caroline Berthet Davilla is perfect. There's something so peaceful and nurturing about her work."
"If your mom is happy and vibrant, you can't go wrong with anything by Claudia Hartley. Her local scenes are always a favorite."
"If your mom is the sort who has everything, or she's a little unusual or edgy...Daniella Fishburne's work will be a big hit. There's something strong and lovely about her photos."
""There is nothing not to love about Daniella Willett-Rabin's happy, interesting art. She captures all the good stuff and you see something new every time you look."
"Functional ceramics by Jeanie Karmiel? Yes, please. In fact, you may be surprised at how much your mom enjoys getting ceramics as a gift. Ceramics are something that moms often admire but don't buy for themselves. It's unexpected and such a treat."
"Terri Friday has some lovely, whimsical pieces from which to choose, too."
"Lloyd Mandel's hand carved bowls are something I keep wishing someone would give me as a gift. Functional, beautiful and made with love...it's like the best present ever."
"Jewelry, jewelry, jewelry. It's indulgent and unique. Kelly Wenner Grossman's work is your go-to for one-of-a-kind, feminine pieces that she can wear with anything."
"And then there are pieces by Mackenzie King. Mackenzie also makes jewelry that goes with everything, but if your mom has bold tastes, get her a show-stopper like this necklace and watch her act like a kid when she opens it."
