This is not your mothers holiday sale, although she might really like it. Some of the Bay Area's finest local artisans and emerging artists are coming together for a one night only sale. Items for sale include unique drawings, paintings & photographs, handmade jewelry, fairtrade clothing, knitwear made from recycled yarn, and much more!

And here's the best part: no one item will be over $100. We're taking the heartache out of holiday gift giving. After all, 'H' also stands for handiwork, homegrown, harmless, heroics, hyeanas, and hadeas corpus, all great reasons to celebrat. So come by, grab a cheap cocktail, listen to some beats, and be inspired to buy yourself something! And, if you really want to, we'll let you take care of everyone else on that list too.

VIVO: Days of the Dead 2010

The Oakland Museum consistently puts on a great, annual show for the Day of the Dead.
This year's show is no exception. There is a mix of pieces from community groups, students and professional artists. Every year there are a handful of pieces that are outstanding. This year there is an installation of an ofrenda by local artist Ana Teresa Fernández that stands out. It is three illuminated figures of girls made from glass shards. There is an interview with artist here. The show is up until December 5 and worth checking out.

Little Things 10

I just got a card for a show up in Portland called Little Things 10. It's at the Guardino Gallery (see link for details). The show includes work from Dan Pillers. I know Dan from his days in San Francisco and he is missed down here. Check out his work if you're up in Portland.

Artist Trading Cards are miniature works of original art measuring 2.5 x 3.5" that are made to trade. This international art movement is intended to be a non-commercial, non-hierarchical, non-judgemental avenue for artistic exchange. All entries received that follow the Entry Guidelines will be exhibited and then traded on the Closing Celebration.
