The Community Treasure Hunt Begins December 1st!
60 hand-made gingerbread people ornaments are hidden throughout Lake Oswego for the sixth annual community treasure hunt. The 4” gingerbread people can be found in city parks, in Lake Oswego businesses, cultural centers and raffled off each Thursday night at the Rain Spark Gallery.
Each gingerbread person is hand crafted from white porcelain imprinted with vintage crochet made by ceramic artist Dorothy Steele. Each piece is glazed with indigo blue glaze. The collectible ornament is signed, dated and numbered.
Join us on Thursday nights to meet the Artists and hear about their inspirations and process. This is a great opportunity to learn about their one of a kind artwork while you shop and snack on light refreshments!
Receptions are from 5-7pm
