More than 18 artists are exhibiting at Cellar Door Gifts & Gallery, as part of the group show Talisman. Curated by Kris Mills, the pieces are the artists’ responses to the idea of a talisman—an item that influences or motivates one’s actions or thoughts. Some offerings are grotesquely humorous, others intricately whimsical. This manifestation of work is only in the gallery until Aug. 31, so get in there and see it, perhaps during the show’s reception on Friday, from 8 to 10 p.m. You can eat snacks and feast your eyes at the same time.
