Art in Bloom - Making Connections with Local Artists

The idea stemmed from the first stay-at-home order of the Covid-19 pandemic: connect to your loved ones through the gift of original art. Art in Bloom artists offers affordable work as a unique opportunity to say "I'm thinking about you." The DAI hosts Art In Bloom to support artists and connection to each other, in isolated times and beyond.

Work ranges from $20 to $150. 100% of each sale goes directly to the artist, The DAI does not take a sales commission for Art in Bloom purchases.

The artist is responsible for the sales and shipment of their artwork and will mail it to the buyer or the gift recipient with a special note.
