Holiday hues

Douglas Flanders & Associates Fine Art Gallery & Consultants recently celebrated its 50-year anniversary. Now it is hosting its first holiday art sale, offering 5-20% off of select artworks. The sale includes work by more than 100 local artists and 100 international artists, with around 500 artworks to choose from. Feel the outdoors with plein air artists such as Scott Lloyd Anderson and Carl Bretzke, or go full on abstract with Donna Bruni or Native modernism artist George Morrison. For those looking to spend at a higher price point, score an Andy Warhol or David Hockney. People also can select from quilts by Gee's Bend or tapestries by Tom Greenough. Works are hung salon style, which is a feast for the eyes but also somewhat dizzying. For those with nostalgia about Dayton's Holiday windows, indulge with Cinderella and characters from "A Christmas Carol" that will be on display in the gallery's window. (5025 France Av.
