A piece of art embodies the creative spirit. It is inspirational; it resonates throughout the community; it is a gift.
In the spirit of the season, Mercury 20 Gallery will be raffling off work by East Bay artists Julie Alvarado, Joanna Salska, Fernando Reyes, and Eric Bohr. Anyone who visits the gallery while the show is up can request a raffle ticket. Those who purchase art will receive five tickets. Other artists include Jo Ann Biagini, Kathleen King, Jill McLennan, PK Frizzell, KC Rosenberg, Charlie Milgrim, Mary Curtis Ratcliff, Leah Markos, Kerry Vander Meer, and Jann Nunn. Come by during the run of the show to get your free chance to win an original piece of art.
The public is invited to the opening reception from 6-8pm, Thursday, Dec. 18. Refreshments will be served as you survey the abundance of small works. This show is designed to present local, affordable art so you can shop for that perfect gift for your list or for yourself. This evening is a Third Thursday on 25th event where other shops, galleries, and cafes in the area stay open late creating a festive street atmosphere.
