Art Pick | Holiday Open House at Flatbed

While there’s no denying the universal appeal of a gift card, bypass the mall this year and step up your giving game with a piece of original artwork instead.

On December 12, Photo Méthode Gallery is hosting a Holiday Open House at the Flatbed Building, a creative hot spot that also houses Flatbed Press and Gallery, CamibaArt, Gallery Shoal Creek and other studios, many of which will be participating in the event as well. The open house not only serves as an opportunity to find something for everyone on your list—prints, books and other small works will be available for sale—but also allows for one-on-ones with the artists themselves. Essentially, gallery director Tina Weitz describes it best, as a chance to “come, de-stress and enjoy some beautiful art this busy holiday season.”

The open house is also the final day for photography fans to view Photo Méthode’s current featured exhibit: Kevin Greenblat’s “Child of the Mississippi,” a powerful, street-style documentation of the people and rich culture of New Orleans and southern Louisiana.

“I hope people walk away feeling introspective…feeling good about the human spirit,” Greenblat said of the photo series, which depicts life in the grittier areas of the region. “I think it’s really alive and well.”

The Holiday Open House will take place at the Flatbed Building at 2832 E. Martin Luther King Blvd. on December 12 from 12-5 pm. Find more info on both the event and Kevin Greenblat’s exhibit at photomethode.com.
