November 9th the good goat gallery celebrates their one year anniversary with Life in Color, an art show that tells stories...

Before humans could read and write, they
drew everything for future generations, (religion, fashion, beliefs, rituals, etc). Art has always been an important tool to convey messages. Most of what we know about our past is due to art. Today, artists still like to tell a good story. For Life in Color, each work will display a colorful narrative, displaying a tale for viewers to read.

Artists' Reception is Nov. 9th, from 
4–9:30PM and the show will be up until December 7th.
