The New Year has arrived! Come enjoy the color, texture, creativity and inspiration of local artists in January with our Art Walk galleries. Some of our locations held their art opening Jan. 1, but a few delayed to Jan. 8 because of the holiday. Get a second helping of Art Walk Jan. 8, then join us for our laid-back, daytime Art Walk event, Second Saturday, noon-5 p.m. Jan. 9 in 12 art venues.
Ordinary objects are often extraordinary. Through careful observation of that we take for granted, we notice how something is created. We wonder at its complexity, its myriad uses, or how it can add to our enjoyment of life. Or we just admire a thing for itself alone- its beauty, solidity and timelessness.

Please join us Friday, December 4 from 7-10pm for Christiano Bellotti's new body of workA Day in the Future: Buncha Damn Triangles.
