More than 30 female artisans will showcase their crafts Dec. 8 at the 16th Annual Women’s Holiday Art Show in support of the City of Alexandria’s Domestic and Sexual Violence Services.

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

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 also welcome. Call LaToshia Love at 703-746-3123 or visit www.alexwomen.com.
