It's time for BANG* - the annual small works show at 1978 Maplewood Arts Center...
The artsy show with the bawdy name is back! 
Saturday & Sundays, December 3rd & 4th and 10th & 11th         
11 AM - 5 PM each day.
This year there are over 45 artists, hundreds of works of art - small and affordably priced for holiday giving. 
Or, even better, you can be just like Herb and Dorothy and start or embellish your own collection with artwork from local and regional artists. 

I have a few Strange Tales and encaustics on display, as well as prints of the large scale drawings. 

Some of my favorite pieces from local artists this year include Maya Bloom's lovely jewelry made of seeds and pods, as well as her Beads of Peace necklaces:

Jo Bradney has prints and notecards of the pink donuts painting, Sugar Spiral (the original of which is also on display, and a painting that I adore and want, but I am just not sure about living with a work of art that makes me want to lick icing...)

Suzanne Henning has a great selection of embellished prints:

And, there is the local treasure, ceramicist/painter Phyllis Carlin...I have my eye on Stravinsky Immersed In The Creation of Spring:

Drop by, say hello, enjoy the hot mulled cider, and, better yet, avoid the mall and support local artists and 1978!

*Bawdy?  absolutely...and, just because someone complained several years ago and insisted on changing the name, I now refuse to - so BANG it is!
