This Holiday Give Creativity, Memories and Skills – No Shipping Required

The holidays are basically HERE. We’re never as prepared as we’d like and there’s always last minute giving to be done.

If you still haven’t found the right something for your loved ones, there is nothing better than an experience that introduces a new (or loved) skill and supports the local community. And you’re just in time, because no shipping…

Gallery Visit – Dateline Gallery. RiNo Art District. Denver, CO.

On a very unassuming corner in the RiNo arts district sits Dateline Gallery, a two month old, multimedia show space run by artists Adam Milner and Jeremy Dorrance. The space is effectively their living room (or showroom you could say), a rectangular white room with track lighting on the ceiling and funky composite wood flooring.
