Inspiring Holiday Gifts

Darlington Arts Center has unique gift ideas for you this year!

Support Local Artists
Stop by Darlington for all your shopping needs!
    - Going to a holiday party?  Order a hand-made chocolate house as a hostess gift everyone will enjoy!
    - Have a reader to shop for?  A Moroccan hand-made woven bookmark will support the women’s co-op in Morocco.
    - Looking to give something representing the Brandywine Valley to your out-of-town relatives?  Karl J. Kuerner’s book “All in a Day’s Work… from heritage to artist” is a beautiful collection of paintings in the Brandywine style representing the farming traditions of this area.
    - Looking to decorate your walls?  Come view the original photography currently on exhibit in our gallery and browse through the prints of paintings we have available.

Gift Certificates
Has someone on your list expressed an interest in learning something new? Consider a Darlington gift certificate! You pick the amount, they pick the subject – clay workshops, piano lessons, yoga classes & so much more! You’ll open the door to a new experience they will treasure, instead of another toy that may break and gather dust.  With our Winter/Spring 2011 Semester beginning January 31st the timing is perfect (full schedule found here).

Alternative Gifts
If you are shopping for that person that has everything, someone out of town, or just trying to get away from the commercialization of the season, consider an alternative gift! While crossing another item off your gift “to-do” list:
      - you will receive a tax-deductible donation for your contribution to Darlington
      - you support your community arts center
      - you determine the amount you spend
      - the person you designate will receive a note informing them of the generous gift you made in their honor, what we have accomplished with it, and you’ve reaffirmed your value of the arts!
