Take a sneak peek…

Take a sneak peek at the new items at Abode Gallery.  We are excited to announce that we have just received beautiful, hand-knotted Tibean rugs.  Our relationship with one of the oldest and most respected rug merchants in the Midwest enables us to offer these rugs at a tremendous value.  We are also excited about the works of Reed Thorpe, a new artist at the Gallery.  Take a look here at his majestic oils of grain elevators.  Come down and see his work and the rugs up close and in person. 

We have lots going on this weekend, so much so that we are feeling like we are at the center of the universe.  This afternoon Arlene Rolf is presenting her artist talk at 2:30.  Arlene has made the ancient art of batik her own.  Her pieces feature colorful dyes and wax on cloth and paper.  The hues and patterns in her work are amazing!  Learn more about Arlene’s process and the source of her inspiration at her talk today.

Stroll into Stockholm General for an espresso or select a bottle of wine.  Stop by Stockholm Pie for a little slice of happiness in a piece of freshly-made pie.  We are thrilled to share with you that this morning Stockholm Pie Company was featured on The Splendid Table.

Stay in town for Hardcover Theater’s traveling Oscar Wilde show, Style Not Sincerity, this evening at 7:00 at the Widespot.  Four actors will play multiple roles in three adaptations of Oscar Wilde’s best short stories: 
"Lord Arthur Savile's Crime," a comic tale of murder,
"The Devoted Friend," a tongue-in-cheek fairy tale,
"The Canterville Ghost," probably the funniest ghost story ever written.
For a little over an hour, laugh to the Wildean witticisms.

We’d love to see you again,
