Featuring Artists Since 1999

This exhibit began in 1999 with the work of 35 artists on display. The intention was to showcase high-quality, affordable art for the gift-giving season. Wrap It Up has since expanded to include more than 80 artists from the region with a wide variety of work. Also, 35 percent of all sales proceeds benefit the Manhattan Arts Center’s facility and programming.
