We are having a hard time believing that Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Where did the summer and fall go?
Our elves are hard at work getting ready for Small Business Saturday (Nov. 26), the traditional day to get out and support local businesses. We are excited to announce that DeWitt Young, the creative genius behind Obvious Front Capacitor Robots will be in the gallery on November 26, with a selection of his creatures. DeWitt takes capacitors from computers, TVs, and VCRs and transforms them into quirky bugs, robots and animals like this crazy crew:
Obvious Front – Capacitor Creatures

Robots start at $15 – an affordable and fun way to support a local business and a local artist. We will also have door prizes and snacks! Free parking is available behind The Pageant Theatre.
