Bookends spotted at Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art.
Don't finish your holiday shopping without checking out the gift shops at metro Phoenix galleries, museums, performing arts spaces, and art boutiques. Most have a wide selection of gift options — including art, jewelry, housewares, books, clothing, totes, office accessories, and novelty items. Typically they offer selections in a wide range of prices, and their items tend to be more unique than those you'll encounter in big box stores or malls this time of year. Here's a sampling of gift items we've found at local art venues — including several made by local artists. Enjoy! All photos by Lynn Trimble.
