35th Annual Holiday for the Arts Show & Sale

Olive Hyde Art Guild’s “Holiday for the Arts” Show & Sale benefits the Olive Hyde Art Gallery and other visual art projects in the Fremont community and schools. The show is held annually during the first weekend in December. The show opens with a ticketed Gala on Friday night featuring hors d’oeuvres, sweets, and wine, with the first viewing and sale of art. On Saturday and Sunday the show is open to the public without charge.

Each year we sell over $25,000 of high quality handcrafted objects and fine art.
