If you think someone on your holiday gift list would love the idea of helping out a young artist while receiving something beautiful, look no further than Van Go's holiday show: "Adornment."

The show and fundraiser will be from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday at Van Go Mobile Arts' home base: 715 N.J. Prices start at just $2 and include everything from jewelry to hand-built signs to glass charms. Each item was created by one of 25 teens, each of whom have been learning art skills during the fall session at Van Go, which strives "to improve the lives of high-needs youth using art as the vehicle for self-expression, self-confidence and hope for the future."

"These art objects have personal stories and heart and soul behind them that commercial holiday shopping venues can't offer," says Lynne Green, Van Go's executive director. "Shopping at Adornment is a way to buy locally while supporting your community."

Can't make it? Van Go's gallery shop will be open 1 to 5 p.m. every day until Dec. 23.
