Why give someone an art candle? "Why shouldn't anybody have one?" notes Matelski, who croons their praises: "It's like a smaller version of the original art and a great way of promoting artists as a whole, in that it makes their artwork more accessible to people who might not be able to buy the original." And you have to admit: They do make a smart-looking accessory. Not to mention, they've been printed using green and recycled materials and soy inks. And you can't quibble with the price, which make them a number one stocking-stuffer on anyone's list.Matelski is also excited to be collaborating with the Art Salon, 2219 East 21st Avenue, a cooperative gallery, glass studio and learning workshop, which will concurrently offer works by resident artists and designers during the opening. Food will be available from Mikes 2 Kitchen and Breckenridge Brewery, too, and that sounds like a party.
13 Lumens (which, BTW, stands for the amount of visible light typically produced by a candle) continues through December 23 for your holiday shopping pleasure. For more information visit the Facebook event page.
