The NYF is here!

The 2008 New Year's Festival is about to begin! Tonight we're kicking things off with a New Year's Eve party that will feature lots of great local food from places like Jeni's Ice Cream, Tip Top Kitchen, Betty's, Surly Girl Saloon, zpizza, Ying's Teahouse, and more. We'll also be tasting our Goose Brew 2008 - the beer we brewed with Frank Barickman of SODZ at our October Too Many Cooks. And on top of all that, we'll be enjoying a concert from Wild Goose favorites Common Shiner.

Keep you eye on this blog; we'll update it with pictures, videos, and more during the festival!

Happy New Year!

Calling Visual Artists!

We have a few openings left for artists to show work in our New Year's Festival gallery for an exhibition to run between January and March. If you have work that is ready to show, get in touch with us!

A few details:
-for work that hangs on walls, each artist has a 4' by 5' area to work with.
-for the New Year's Festival, we are also interested in smaller, non wall-hanging work. If you have both, all the better!
-typically, we will show 6 artists at a time, though we are open to more or less, and we are open to collaborations, installations, and other ideas.

Shoot us an email if you are interested; I (Jessie) will get in touch with you to see what's possible.

Also, if you haven't seen the work that's hanging in the space now, you should come by! We have art by the following really really great visual artists:
Nick Fancher
Chris Shaw
Robin Oatts
Eva Jorgensen
Jeffrey Horvath
Sharon Bell

A great opportunity to come look to your heart's content: this month's Third Thursdays, December 18 at 8pm!

Craft Night

If you are finding that the holiday season is making you want to make things, maybe you'd like to set aside this Thursday evening to craft with some company!

I myself might be making grading papers, but if life goes better than expected this week, I will be knitting instead!

We'll be there starting at 7pm. Bring some wine, cheese, or something else nice to share if you like.

If you want to let us know you'll be there, you can respond to this Facebook event. Or just stop by, if you'd like to keep your presence a surprise.
