The Deer Isle Artists Association will hold a pop-up market at its gallery from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday, Dec. 4, 5 and 6. Perfect gifts include baskets, ceramics, handmade books, jewelry, masks, ornaments, paintings, photography, textiles and more, by more than 20 artists.

“We have had so much fun with our pop-up shows and holiday treats over the last four years. Although we will not be having group festivities this year because of Covid, we will have many festive items,” said Cynthia Bourque-Simonds, DIAA board member who serves as the gallery coordinator. “We will price items as affordable gifts and limit gallery guests to five at a time, all wearing masks.”

Artists participating in this year’s holiday pop-up include Leslie Andersen, Don Bardole, Cynthia Bourque Simonds, Betsy Braunhut, Jackie Davidson, Mary Eaton, Jill Finsen, Leslie Goode, Cathy Hart, Jadyn LaDeau, Clare McBeth, David McBeth, Diane McGuire Horton, David Simonds, Joan Tibbetts, Tracy Van Buskirk and John Woodruff.
