MCLA Gallery 51: 99¢ & Up: ART MALL
Deals, Deals, Deals!!! A call out to holiday shoppers! ! Once a year, MCLA Gallery 51 slashes prices of works by local and national artists: in a sense these objects are "priceless," but with a price tag somewhere between "99 cents" and "up." If you've been seeking out that unique gift idea for someone special on your list, with these reduced prices, this show is the time to buy!
A free opening reception will be held Thursday, December 3 from 5 to 8 p.m. as part of a downtown-wide evening of gallery openings and activities - DownStreet Art Thursday on Ice: a perfect opportunity to stock up on unique, affordable gifts. All items can be taken at time of purchase, and gift wrapping will be available.
MCLA Gallery manager/snake oil salesman Ven Voisey explains the concept behind the show, "Whether you're a conflicted idealist, a die-hard capitalist, something in between, or none of the above, you've probably found yourself befuddled by shopping malls and big box stores, and people's behavior within them, during holiday shopping season. This upcoming exhibit is simultaneously an examination of that phenomenon, and a great chance support the local economy by adding artwork from a selection of MCLA Gallery 51 & Downstreet Art -exhibited artists to the holiday gift list. The gallery will be chock-full of affordable, ready-to-be-sold-off-the wall art of a wide variety of mediums priced between 99 cents and 99 dollars. Come on down to the Art Mall!"
