More than 30 female artisans will showcase their crafts Dec. 9 at the 14th Annual Women’s Holiday Art Show in support of the City of Alexandria’s Domestic and Sexual Violence Services.

“We appreciate everyone who comes out to support us,” said Lisa Baker, director of the Office for Women. “It’s a fun afternoon and a great way to get some holiday shopping done and support a vital community need at the same time.”

Sponsored by the Alexandria Commission for Women and Friends of the Commission for Women, the event will be held at the Charles Houston Recreation Center, 905 Wythe St., 1-5 p.m. Holiday shoppers can enjoy refreshments as they browse a selection of high-quality, handcrafted pottery, clothing, jewelry and gifts in support of the city’s programs for women.

The Holiday Market will also serve as a collection point for unwrapped toys and gifts for the children of clients of the Alexandria Battered Women’s Shelter. Tax-deductible contributions are welcome. Call 703-746-3123 or visit www.alexwomen.com.
