Small Business Saturday
November 16, 2020

As the 2020 holiday season approaches, year-end shopping sprees are going to feel quite a bit different. This year, many of us are looking to skip the commercial goods in favor of meaningful gifts for loved ones that support small businesses. Check out this round-up of unique items you can find at Bakova Gallery that are perfect for anyone in need of a little extra color and creativity in their life. Each purchase also helps local and emerging artists as they continue to endure the COVID-19 pandemic. 


Join us for “Small Business Saturday” next week and shop local 12-5pm on Saturday, November 28. Special holiday pricing will be available on select works. See you there!
  1. Elegant Florals

Adorn walls with creative and colorful blooms by Jenny Brown. Each piece has its own unique texture and flair, providing an organic sense of vibrance and life. These mixed media artworks are already framed and behind glass, so they’ll display beautifully and safely in any room of the house. Plus, your loved one can enjoy fresh florals year-round without ever having to change the water. 


  1. Handmade Jewelry 

When you take a peek inside our jewelry case, you’ll discover much more than a pretty pair of earrings - these are artworks you can wear. 


Ara Leigh incorporates sea glass and shells with precious metals, creating a chic yet coastal aesthetic.


 Martha Paris works with natural stones, semi-precious gems, and crystals, creating each new piece different from the last.

  1. Conversation Pieces

One of our most popular artists at Bakova Gallery is Douglas Cason. His multi-disciplinary work evokes deep thought and unique interpretations from viewers, making them the perfect conversation piece for any home or office, especially around the holidays. Cason’s oil paintings suggest themes of patriotism, war, and politics - what better artwork to commence 2020?
