Otis Gallery Fridays on First


Last night Nourot Glass did a showing in front of the Otis Gallery at First Street in Benicia, California. Benicia loves a parade and the annual First Friday in December is a people parade where locals walk the Main Street towards the tree lighting on the pier. Otis Gallery features the work of Ranna, Reven Rosen and Brian Giambastiani. Glass, Metal and Ceramic sculpture as well as knitted shawls from adjacent Benicia Knitting Circle are artfully displayed in the former shop of Otis the Shoemaker, a long-time Benica landmark.
While we chatted with passers by we handed out our 20% off coupons of Monopoly money with Micheal Nourot's picture. Ornaments and a few pocket treasures were sold. Inside the Otis staff made guests welcome with wine and warm cider. The artists of Otis, Brian and Reven are former glass gaffers at the Nourot Studio. Otis Gallery is open Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays.
