Also (screening in the studio during the opening only), there will be a slide-show of all of the exhibition posters dating back to December, 1998, which is a way of acknowledging all of the artists who have exhibited during the gallery's 21-year history. Here is a list.
And on Saturday 7th December at 3pm we have a special musical performance by The Noveltones. Admission is $10, door sales only. Space is limited so come early. There will be no admission once the performance begins, as it's disruptive for others listening. Here's a sample.
