You Break It, You Buy It

Lest we forget, galleries exist to sell art. Is the art often well-curated and the artists hand selected? Yes, of course. But they are shops, none the less. And in the spirit of the shopping season, and inspired by concept spaces like Collette in Paris and Dover Street Market which has locations in London and New York, Erin Cluley Gallery (414 Fabrication St.) presents El Mercado. It will combine both the market and the art exhibition experience with art, design, music and artistic food. The nine participating atists include Dallas-based Zeke Williams and Rob Wilson. Stop by the opening from 1-8 p.m. Saturday, or through December 27. More information at
Sat., Dec. 6, 1-8 p.m.; Tuesdays-Fridays, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: Dec. 6. Continues through Dec. 27, 2014
