Valentine's Day is always a tricky holiday. There's so much pressure on couples to get each other nice things and be romantic, but by February, we're all depressed, fat, and still broke from Christmas. One place to do things differently this year is at the Redux Gallery "Love Print" art show, opening First Friday in February, and going until the 26th.
Instead of cheesy-ass cards or candies, get something a bit more personal that would go in his/her apartment, and save those calories for wine instead.
Artists include: Alex DeSpain, APAK, Brittany Hanson, Loaded Hip Press, Owl Cat Ink, Peter Nevins, Red Bat Press and Timothy Karpinski.
