Hanging Art 

Local artists fill galleries with work fit for a tree, stocking, or that tricky spot behind the toilet.

AIGA Richmond, an association for graphic designers, puts together a silent auction of ornaments made by locals like these made by Brian Thomson and Lisa Pintavalle Dec. 14, 6-9 p.m. at Café Gutenberg. Proceeds benefit Art 180. Free. 497-5000.

The Artemis Gallery breaks out the cider and easels for a holiday party and show of works by Thomas Mann, Richard Birket, Cathy Sherman and others Dec. 16, 5-11 p.m. 254-1755.

1708 Gallery, Art6, Artspace and Curated Culture all work in miniature this month with their small-works shows, stuff for that awkward space above the light switch, behind the toilet, over the doghouse door. Art6's show runs through Dec. 17 (232-6464); 1708's show runs through Dec. 22 (643-1708); and Artspace (343-1406) and Curated Culture (344-1508) run through Dec. 23.

Over at Nonesuch Art and Apparel, stocking stuffers for the deranged child come to us from Oura Sanikone in the form of plush toys, joining Travis Robertson's prints and the work of Thomas Dean, Matt Wells, Allyson Mellberg and others, through December. 649-4069.

And if you're notoriously late on gift-giving, Visual Art Studio's Fifth Annual Artistic Gifts Show lets you drag your feet, slosh eggnog and so on until Jan. 27 before checking out their artwork, jewelry and ceramics. 644-1368. — Brandon Reynolds
