Give someone a gift certificate and they’ll remember it for—oh, about five seconds.
Give someone a piece of artwork and they’ll think of you every single day. Hide a tiny camera in the frame and you’ll get a gift every day, too. (Especially if the recipient is hot and he hangs the art near his shower.)
Whatever your art-giving motives or last-minute purchase needs, a painting or print is always a wonderful present. Just ask gay artist Daniel Padilla and his brother Manuel, who are hosting a big Happy Hour Christmas Art Show & Sale this week at Padilla Gallery in Oak Cliff.
There’ll be complimentary cocktails and they’re discounting all their inventory, which includes a vast array of stunning fine art originals and prints.
Best of all, prices start at just twenty bucks.
Or $5 less than your typical Outback Steakhouse gift card.
