An offbeat First Friday submission from the up-cycling accessory innovators at Redux: Proprietress Tamara Goldsmith has teamed up with painter and jewelry designer Zachary Pryor for a series of animal portraits whose flat painted surfaces are embellished with 3D elements like seashells and dried flowers in what they're calling their "homage to magical beasties not necessarily from this world." The results are a perfect fit with the winking nature of many of the quirky finds at Redux, which you'll be able to peruse at the opening reception this (First) Friday from 6-9:30 at the shop, aided by the sounds of DJ Dragons & Sh*t. Also, Redux is one of the many retailers participating in Sunday's massive Bargain Hunting clearance sale (a full list of vendors is here) at the Crystal Ballroom from noon-5 pm, your chance to score goods from indie shops and other vendors on the ultra-cheap, complete with cocktail in hand.
