Part-handmade craft gift shop, part-art gallery, Fabricate in Northside has led the way for artists of all stripes to exhibit and sell their wares for the better part of three years now. To celebrate their three-year anniversary (only one week before the Crafty Supermarket — another venture from Fabricate co-owner Chris Salley — naturally) it hosts Tabula Rasa
, a small collection of painted illustrations by local artist Sara Gelbert
. Gelbert operates her own brand of fine art and design-inspired objects under the name Excitations and routinely crafts feathers, insects and other natural subjects upon appropriated materials like leather and wood. Expect to see painted examples of Gelbert’s meticulous attention for detail and get a chance to celebrate the continued success of independent small business owners during the November edition of Northside’s Second Saturdays. 6-10 p.m. Nov. 10. Fabricate, 4037 Hamilton Ave., Northside. fabnorthside.com.
