Make an elf out of yourself for charity

The Tannery Marketplace is looking for a few good elves.

Each elf sighting reported by text message, email or phone will earn $1 toward the elf’s charity of choice. Each photo of an elf posted to the Tannery’s Facebook page gets $2.

To participate, register and pick up a numbered elf hat at the Newburyport Chamber of Commerce or the following Tannery shops: The Black Duck, Riverside Cycles, Newburyport Olive Oil Co., Eureka! Toys and Shanti Salon.

Since the program began in 2009, more than $12,000 has been collected for organizations such as the Rowley Council on Aging, the Amesbury holiday program and The Pettengill House. Several five-star elves have been participating since the beginning, earning a gold star for each year.

The program runs through Dec. 25. The Tannery is located at 50 Water St., Newburyport.

Boat shop invites public to celebration

Lowell’s Boat Shop is hosting its annual Holiday Open House and Art Exhibit this weekend.

More than 50 artists will display their work in “Wood and Water: A Mixed Media Exhibit.” Participants include members of the Newburyport Art Association and its collaboration with Opportunity Works. OpArt is an art education outreach program that provides hands-on instruction to those with special needs.

The open house, running from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, also features wood products, fresh evergreen trees, apparel, jams and jellies, and raffles. A silent auction will offer items such as Celtics and Patriots tickets, a trestle table made with pine from a 17th-century Ipswich home, a private row in a replica whaleboat, antiques, gourmet tastings, and cruises.
