With Halloween, the Bemis Auction, Thanksgiving in the rearview and Christmas on the horizon, this can only mean one thing – Group art shows!

The end of the year is usually the time for some local art galleries to expand their offerings and help the art patron more easily view and collect art. The group exhibits usually display both new works and warehoused inventory; providing more variety of medium, more work from each artist, and more exposure for the galleries. With the added benefit of a wide variety of price points, both browsers and buyers can reap rewards.
