New York Giants vs. Arizona Cardinals
Sept. 17

There’s excitement in the air as the new NFL season ramps up. The Cardinals are taking on their East Coast rivals, the New York Giants. We don’t want to make any bold predictions, but the statistics are in our favor, with five of the last six meetups putting the Cards in the win column, meaning the team could start things off on a high note.

Good Grief
Through Oct. 1

Using humor to confront weighty topics is a tactic often employed by writers and comedians.

Whether it’s acrylic paints on a canvas or fashioning a tattooed rabbit with ceramics, there is no wrong way for an artist to express what resides in their soul.
