If you find yourself shopping for gifts this year (and let’s face it, most of us do) you might be in the classic Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/nondenominational winter holiday quandary: what do you get the people in your life? Scarves are safe, CDs and books are dangerous and gift cards are just too impersonal. If you’re looking for something Berkeley-esque, however, look no further: the ASUC Art Studio is currently hosting a holiday art sale.

The art sale is in the MLK building from Nov. 30 (today) until Dec. 4 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. (closes at 3 p.m. on Dec. 4). Little more information is provided, although they do advertise things that are both “handmade and original.” We don’t know exactly what type of art, either, but they’re taking classes on ceramics, drawing and painting and photography, so it’s sure to be a blend.

And it’s Berkeley, so there may very well be anti-capitalist motifs. As we all know, that’s perfect for Yuletide.

Holiday Sale [Berkeley Art Studio]

Everyone and their mother’s nazi memorabilia will tell you that in addition to being a vegetarian, a momma’s boy and an occasional cocaine abuser, Adolph Hitler was a painter. Yeah. That’s right. Who’s goosesteppin’ now, Josef Mengele?

Perhaps lesser known is a body of work produced during the Third Reich by Adolph’s cat counterpart, HitlerCat. In celebration of this much overlooked assemblage of cat still life, BAM has agreed to showcase the collection in a special ONE DAY retrospective. Today, Thursday, April 1.

Be there, or be a good for nothing dog.
