If you have been thinking about planning a visit to Merrick Art Gallery in New Brighton, the Christmas season is a great time for that visit. While the gallery’s collection is impressive in its own right, there is an additional beauty that is added by the elegant Christmas display around this time every year.

Starting on Friday, December 6, the halls will be decked in silver and gold, as will the trees, the entranceway, and all of the gallery rooms. This year’s theme is “Putting On The Glitz,” which is also the theme of The Merrick Art Gallery Associates Women’s Council dinner on Friday, December 12.

This year’s Christmas display will feature a train display, antique toys, and two large dollhouses that will all complement the theme. The Christmas display will be open to the public during normal hours until December 20. The gallery is open from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm on Tuesday through Saturday, and from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Sundays.

You’re probably really busy with the hustle and bustle of the holiday season right now, and it isn’t likely to get any better before Christmas shows up at your doorstep, but do yourself a favor and make it a point to take some time out to appreciate this beautiful art in an amazing Christmas setting. You won’t regret it.
