It's a sad day for local art aficionados and savvy shoppers alike. Local art maestra Lauri Lynnxe Murphy will be closing her gallery, Capsule Art and Event Center, at the end of the year because the building's owner is tearing down the structure to make way for a parking lot (insert Joni Mitchell reference here). Along with Capsule goes Murphy's Art-O-Mart
, a quarterly, deal-ridden arts-and-crafts smorgasbord that was named the "Best Place to Find Undiscovered Artists" in Westword
's 2007 Best of Denver issue.
Tonight's Art-O-Mart, held from 6 to 10 p.m. at Capsule, 560 Santa Fe Drive, will be your last chance to see what all the fuss is about. Murphy promises this final installment will be bigger and better than ever. Go for the holiday shopping opportunities, stay for the memories. For more information, call 303-623-3460.
Fri., Nov. 2, 6-10 p.m.; Fri., Dec. 7, 6-10 p.m., 2007
