Buy Art Now Guys!

This will be the 6th annual small works show Buy Art Now Guys! (BANG VI) an exhibition featuring small scale original artwork by over 40 local and regional artists.

The exhibition will be open on the first 2 weekends in December and many of the artists will be present during the exhibit to answer your questions about their artwork. So take refuge from the shopping mall and drop by for some mulled cider and cookies and a visual feast of art.

There is wide selection of styles and subjects to delight and amuse you, with everything from paintings, photographs, sculptures, prints, ceramics, jewelry, note cards, drawings and more. Something for everyone on your list in fact - even for that Person Who Has Everything

All artwork for this exhibit is affordably priced for giving and maybe just for keeping for yourself - get something you want this year!

A special member’s preview for Friends of 1978 will be held on Friday, December 2nd from 7 – 9 PM. But don't worry if you aren't a member yet - new memberships will be accepted at the door


20% of all sales from BANG VI will go to 1978 to support the exhibits and community projects presented by the arts center throughout the year.
