At least once a year we need to treat ourselves to art. Some things for ourselves and some for family and friends. The annual 1978 BANG (Buy Art Now Guys) exhibit and sale at Gallery 1978 accommodates that need. Art, in a range of affordable prices, is displayed and offered for sale. Timing is perfect: in time for Christmas or stocking up for a new year of birthdays, anniversaries & celebratory events. 

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 VIII will go to 1978 to support the exhibits and community projects
presented by the arts center throughout the year.
