January 6th, 2009 - 2009 Calendars are here!

Nicole J. Georges' Queer Animal Kingdom calendaris as adorable as it is enlightening. Rejoice in the happiness of companionship and love as you flip through the super sweet drawings that fill each page along with reminders for each of your favorite holidays. A true bargain at only $9 each, you might even want to frame the drawings at the end of the year!

Claire Nereim
takes a different approach to the calendar year! She presents us with the Seasonal Fruits of California! One ripening fruit for each month of the year! This isn't a traditional calendar with dates that will change from year to year, but instead is a lovely full-color silkscreen print that you will enjoy for years to come! $45 each.

December 21, 2008 - Fontanelle is closed for the holidays!

We have returned to the homeland for friends and family and fun!

Please join us when we reopen in 2009 with an Oregon Painting Society redux and special new performance on January 8th!
