MOCK TAXIDERMY: A Curious Collection of Rare Beasts

During December's First Friday Artwalk, disembark at the Green Hand Bookshop to explore a never before seen exhibition of man-made monsters!

Artist Elise Smorczewski is solely responsible for this exhibit's marvelous contents. This menagerie of fanciful creatures was captured and brought back to civilization for your viewing pleasure during one of her many forays into the wild depths of the Land of Imagination.

Viewers may remember Elise's past work with real and imagined animal themes, including her fabulous "Beasts & Botany," "Flights of Fancy," and "Hamsters & Popcorn" shows.

These remarkable creatures will be displayed for only a short time, so don't delay! Since this show coincides with the holidays, we are allowing patrons to take their purchases with them so as not to delay gift-giving abilities.

Viewing hours at the Green Hand (beyond First Friday Artwalk) are the store's usual open hours: Tues-Fri 11:00-6:00, Sat 11:00-7:00, Sun 12:00-5:00 PLUS!!! We will be open on Mondays through December for extra holiday mischief.
