Winter is coming…
…and what better way to take cover than by staying home and keeping warm by the soothing light of the ol’ boob tube? But first you’ll have to brave the cold and make it out to Guzu Gallery’s winter art show, of course! For the first time ever, Guzu is preparing an art exhibition completely comprised of television-themed artwork. This is their final show of the year; you don’t want to miss it!
Twenty-six artists will pay tribute to the small screen, with over thirty stylish renditions of characters and settings from television’s past and present. Each never-before-seen art piece will be on display at the opening reception on Friday, December 7th from 7 to 10pm, and the exhibition will remain up through January 7th. Original artwork and prints will be available for purchase — unique items to fit every budget! As always, admission is free and all ages are welcome. Come by the gallery and you’ll be able to cross even the most impossible individuals off your holiday shopping list!
Guzu Gallery welcomes everyone to the show, but if you can’t make it out, the artwork will be available for purchase in their online store on Wednesday, December 12th around Noon CST.
Stay tuned to Guzu’s social media outlets for more info and sneak previews as the days get closer to show time!
