Curious Gallery is this weekend!!

Are you an amateur naturalist?? A collector of peculiarities?? Does your apartment resemble a museum or do you practically *live* in a terrarium of your own construction?? If so, I hope you’ll attend Curious Gallery this weekend!! We’re proud to join GEAR Con and Wells & Verne in sponsoring this unique event—a celebration of the wunderkammern tradition, aka ‘cabinets of curiosity.’ There will be artists, vendors, and giveaways in addition to a diverse program on everything from alchemy to zoology (get it…a to z??) Really—you should go to this if you possibly can!!! For the details, please visit the official event site here.
