• Merry Mugs & More


    The "Mud Ladies" have been working harder than Santa's elves in preparation of our second annual “Merry Mugs and More” holiday event! For only $20, event attendees can choose from a wide selection of handcrafted mugs by local artists/our very own “Mud Ladies.” This year’s event will feature many pet/animal themed mugs to coincide with our current gallery exhibit, "Don't Feed the Art." There will also be goodies and snacks to enjoy, as well as an "Over the Top" Hot Chocolate Bar.

    In addition, we will also host a live demo of animal portraits, face painting, and are excited to welcome the Humane Society of Somerset County to raise awareness about the animals currently at their shelter and to collect pet supply donations for their center.

    Attendees can also purchase gallery gift shoppe items while attending the event. The event itself is free to attend and open to the public!

  • Pet Photos with Santa


    Kids aren’t the only ones who love to meet Santa! The big guy himself will be at Laurel Arts to meet your four-legged friend and pose for a photo to help you spread some cheer just in time for the holiday season.

    Santa will be waiting to greet your furry (or not so furry) friends on the front porch of Laurel Arts' Philip Dressler Center for the Arts. Please bring a camera or simply use your phone for the paw-fect holiday picture!

    We kindly ask that attendees use best judgement when bringing their pets as there will be other animals present. Note that your pet must be secured (leash, carrier, etc.) and vaccinated.

    This event is free to attend and there will be no charge for photographs with Santa. Donations are always welcome, so that Laurel Arts can continue to offer fun and creative events for our community.
