Lop off “sons” from the title of Booth Tarkington’s masterpiece The Magnificent Ambersons and what do you have? The theme for the 13th edition of the Harrison Center’s annual color-themed holiday show. Yes, the color of the year is amber. Also at the Harrison: Here & There: New Work by Shannon Hinkle in the City Gallery; The Pursuit of Happiness (Everything Will Be Gold): New Work by Quincy Owens in Gallery No. 2; and, in the gymnasium, the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange’s Winter Mini, featuring 45 artists and crafters. What’s more, Dan Wakefield will give “a talk in four brief segments” (at 6:45, 7:30, 8:15 and 9 p.m.) titled Corn, Limestone and Books: Why Hoosier Writers Sell Best (you may recall reading an essay on the same theme in NUVO last month). The Harrison Center is home to 33 working artists who will welcome attendees into their studios throughout the 6 to 10pm opening.
