The winter solstice. Long celebrated in many cultures as a significant time of year, the winter solstice is often marked by festivals and rituals. With the gradual lengthening of days and the shortening of nights, it’s seen as the symbolic rebirth of the Sun. Enjoy several pieces by various Sorrel Sky’s artists, as we celebrate winter’s arrival and the wonderland it brings with it. Please feel free to contact the gallery regarding any of the artwork seen here.
