Our featured artist, Nihal Kececi, this month is selling one special painting, a framed "master's edition," at silent auction. A big painting of a graceful woman in a light blue dress. Here's how it works: You list your name and contact info with your bid and the highest bidder at the end of the exhibit (I think we said 2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 13) goes home with the painting. And—Nihal will give 50% of the sale to the cafe owners. Bidding starts at $500, and bids may be raised by a minimum of $25.
Check cafe hours the week between Christmas and New Year's (Kwanzaa week) by driving by or calling in advance—the dates fall in such a way that Lene and Abeba may take most or all of the week off (which means no coffees and no gallery viewing, except through the window, on those days).
