Kat Houseman just sent me four awesome little paintings - acrylic on canvas - for the holiday season. Each is 8" x 8", priced at $200. These will be perfect stocking stuffers for the fine art lover in your life! And, of course we ship - we'll pick up the shipping tab from now until next Friday on any art purchase to be shipped in the continental U.S. What's that you say? Won't fit in your stocking? Well, you'd better get bigger stockings! ...

Kick off the holiday season in Bigfork on Saturday! Decorating Day starts at 8a - being a part of the elves crew and transforming the Village into a winter wonderland is an experience not to be missed. Follow it up by strolling through the shops and galleries, and then gather at the tree in front of Bjorge's Gallery at 7p for the tree lighting ceremony. We hope to see you! ...
