AODC Gallery Celebrates the Holidays


On Dec. 3rd, Art On the Divide Cooperative Gallery will celebrate what has become an annual event in Georgetown....

      “Music, Munchies and Marvelous Art.”
For early shoppers, the gallery will be open as usual at 10:00 a.m. and then will offer a special evening of shopping until 7:00 p.m.  Be sure to visit main street Georgetown to participate in all of the holiday events, including the lighting of the Georgetown Christmas tree and the light parade.  AODC will provide hot drinks and munchies throughout the day and between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m., local pianist, Mary Beth Dowd, will be playing holiday music on the piano. Stop in to warm up, get into the holiday spirit, and of course, enjoy the marvelous art.
AODC Gallery has a diverse array of art created by local artists.  Jewelry, photography, paintings, notecards, pottery, prints, leather sculpture, woodcraft, chainmaille and lariat rope baskets are just some of the “artistic treasures” that would make perfect gifts.  Special one-of-a-kind ornaments and holiday decor are also available.  Purchasing local art can help with your gift list as well as support your community.  For those difficult gifts, we also offer Gift Certificates for later purchases.  The gallery is set and ready for your visit.


The gallery is open Friday-Sunday from 10-5 p.m. Additionally, Art On the Divide Gallery will be open December 19 thru the 22nd (Monday thru Thursday) from 11-4 and Christmas Eve11 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Art On the Divide Cooperative Gallery is located in one of Georgetown’s historic buildings at 6295 Main Street.

Its 2022 - AODC Celebrates more than a decade on the Divide, your local source for gifts and fine art... We are excited to be in our 12th year on the Divide with a continued celebration of the Arts

AODC gallery currently has twelve local artists.  Artists have joined, left for various reasons, and new ones have replaced the vacancies.  The gallery is open to artists that provide something new and different.  If you or someone you know is looking to join the gallery , the application and information regarding membership is available here...

AODC artists continue to "refresh" the gallery monthly with new art.  Providing the community with workshops to teach various art techniques and receptions to showcase the art are typical of our monthly offerings.   We welcome feedback from the community to help us plan workshops.  What would you like to learn?  Past workshops have included jewelry, stained glass, mask making, collage and rose-pruning.Directly behind the gallery is a historic rose garden that is maintained by the artists.  We have been fortunate to have the Divide Garden Club help with rose-pruning, and hope to continue with that collaboration.  They have also been generous in awarding the gallery many years of grants to help with this maintenance.AODC gallery is pleased to provide a space for local student art, under the leadership of Susan Sasano, a local volunteer.  She reaches out to our local schools and will switch out the artwork regularly.

Thank you to Stanley Marciel, owner of Garden Valley Roses for his expertise in Rose Pruning.
A lively and helpful group of rose enthusiasts learned the proper techniques of rose pruning and then proceeded to prune all of the roses in the Gallery Garden...almost 100 of them.  Thank you so much for your help.  Be sure to check back in May to see the roses in full bloom.  And don't forget to visit Garden Valley Roses where they have more than 10,000 roses for you to choose from.
