Christmas Art: Mobile, Alabama

Traditional Christmas art abounds and you can find it on plates, posters, prints, wallpaper, and cards. The manger scene, the three wise men traveling on camels to see the baby Jesus--the King of Kings--the Madonna and child--these religious depictions tell us what Christmas is all about.

The country and city snow scenes, snowmen, Santa and reindeer evoke a different Christmas concept that is okay, if tempered by the real meaning. But the art work in various forms is plentiful in showing us both sides of Christmas.

Another wonderful Christmas art form is extravagant Christmas tree decorating.

Beginning 12/16/11 at the Cathedral Square Gallery the Creative Christmas Styles
show will feature 5 trees decorated by artists. Also, the artwork of sixty Mobile artists will be displayed.

The Light Before Christmas will be showing at the IMAX at the Gulf Coast Explorium Science Center during the holidays until 1//2/12. It starts 12/16/11.

Ah, Christmas art, you gotta like it.
