The Northside's AnArte Gallery & Studio is throwing three days of holiday art parties this week, beginning with Wednesday's opening of Michael Wayne's solo show, "It shows no favoritism and is always sincere." Wayne's abstract paintings are filled with tumultuous shapes and bright colors that recall fluid dynamics, deep space phenomena, or swimming protozoa from an alternate world. Wednesday's reception will include an artist talk at 7:30 p.m. Stop by again Friday and Saturday afternoons for the AnArte Holiday Open House with music by Louis Davila and a cavalcade of artist-made gifts by gallery artists and friends. Find jewelry by Mari Sawtelle Dunn, P. Griffin, and Cassandra Designs; glass works by Justin Parr and Zollie Glass Art; objets d'art by "Married with Paintings" collaborators Bryson Brooks and Holly Hein; rare objects, bling, and crystal by Hilal and Kati Hibri, along with other gift-able treats by over 30 artists. Special bonus Saturday: a wine tasting hosted by Finders Keepers. Free; 6-9pm Wed, Dec 12; AnArte Gallery, 7959 Broadway, (210) 826-5674, anartegallery09.com.
