Get organized, cuz we've got a live one this week, with not only sales but important discussions that could affect the future of a burgeoning local industry. And on the arts tip, check out this week's Sold Out on the "Notions of Beauty" fashion photography exhibit opening tonight and featuring images like this creepy-eyed lass:
