WHY GO? Because of her breast cancer diagnosis, shop owner Mina Buc is taking off time from her business to fight the disease. Co-owner and husband Jim Buc will help her along the way.

WHY GO? For 20 years, Mike Parillo has created designs for the snowboard industry. Now he has completed paintings for this show, titled "Reckless Optimism." Boys and girls, this work is coooooool! The longer you stare at Parilllo's paintings, the more you see. These pieces are about trippy color, line and symbolism ... like tattoos that Salvador Dali might have selected.
