Ober-Anderson Gallery Opening

Member Daven Anderson reports:

If you’re looking for something to do while waiting for the world to end or a new age to begin, spend it in Ober Anderson Gallery. Enjoy some refreshing wine, tasty hors d’oevres and amazing art between those annoying cosmic portals or sudden psyche flows. Ober Anderson Gallery and 11.11.11–what better way to spend a prime and memorable date than in an equally prime and memorable place! Valet parking is available.

In honor of Veteran’s Day, 10% of the evening’s sales will be donated
to the
Special Operations Warrior Foundation. (
