Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Do you have any gift ideas? What better way to celebrate the love of a mom than buying something that is unique and beautiful — just like them
This article explores four great South San Francisco Bay Area art galleries you should consider for your Mother’s Day gift ideas.
Lori Krein Studios
Lori Krein is not just selling mannequin body art, masks, collage art, and one-of-a-kind pieces, she is also a teacher. Some of her students are featured on the website too – great job!
Krein offers a variety of tweens, teens, and adult classes. The tweens and teens – ages 8 and up – can attend a four-day workshop during the summer about painting and mixed media. A cartoon workshop is also held in the summer over a five-day period where kids leave with their very own comic strip.
Adult classes include Ladies Night Out, Meditate and Create: Art from the Soul, mask and papermaking workshops, landscape collages, and many more. How much fun would your mom or wife have attending one of these courses? Might make the perfect Mother’s Day gift.
A best art gallery winner in The Mercury News, Heartworks Gallery offers one-of-a-kind, vibrant and texturized artwork in a loving atmosphere. Debbie Marie Arambula pours her heart into every work of art – and the pieces truly show her passion.
Inspired by the art she creates, Debbie and Heartworks offer other artistic goodies including heart-shaped jewelry, bowls, platters, and vases. When you purchase from Heartworks Gallery, you can rest assured some of the proceeds are donated. Debbie supports Fight for Kids, The Way to Happiness Foundation, HEARTS in San Francisco, and AHeartforHospice. Show your mother or wife you care and buy her a big heart for Mother’s Day. It will make a wonderful addition to the home.
