Kellogg Gallery: A Tapestry of Movement, a curated solo exhibit of artist James Griffin focusing on the movement of people across the picture plane, captured in the joyful expression of action.  Once a precise painter, Griffin’s style has evolved into a brushy, expressive boldness that still manages to be representational.  “On the streets of great cities, people pass by so quickly, we hardly notice them.  However, in my paintings, they begin to feel like people I know.  Their faces, the way they walk, their happy or burdened lives reveal themselves under closer observation, our shared humanity making a beautiful tapestry.”

Searle Gallery: Ornament Extravaganza, Step into a winter wonderland of holiday trees, decked out with hundreds of locally made, hand crafted ornaments, all available for purchase.  Reminisce of times gone by and rediscover the magic of the season.

Reid Hodges Gallery: Giving Thanks, An open, all media juried exhibition.  As we approach the holidays, we ask, what are you thankful for?  Is it family? Is it health? Is it friends? Is it all of the above?  Artists are asked to submit work that reflects that which they are most thankful.
