At least once a year we need to treat ourselves to art. Some things for ourselves and some for family and friends. The annual 1978 BANG (Buy Art Now Guys) exhibit and sale at Gallery 1978 accommodates that need. Art, in a range of affordable prices, is displayed and offered for sale. Timing is perfect: in time for Hanukah and Christmas or stocking up for a new year of birthdays, anniversaries & celebratory events.
