Pencil This In: Art Shopping, Grindhouse Films, Cocktails for a Cause, and 'I Made Out With Him Anyway'
SMMoA's shop GRACIE expands with one-of-kind gifts for the holidays and a bevy of American made recycled, repurposed, and green items inspired by the work of Southern California-based guest artist Shari Elf. Elf's "good and sturdy art" is made from discarded lumber, tin, plastic and other decorative odds and ends. More than 100 of her three-dimensional, handmade pieces, made exclusively for GRACIE, will be available. Elf's highly sought after work will be sold on a first come, first served basis, with prices starting at $45. The shop is open today 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and will be open through December 23.
The Grindhouse Film Festival at the New Bev has an Alan Ormsby tribute/double feature tonight, and Ormsby is expected to be there in person to discuss his work. At 7:30 is Deranged (1974, USA, 82 minutes), and at 10:00 on the same bill is Deathdream (aka DEAD OF NIGHT) (1974, USA, 88 minutes). Admission: $8
