Check out the staff art show now on exhibit at Blue State Coffee on Thayer Street. These are witty and beautiful works in a variety of forms — tapestry, painting, sculpture, even needlepoint. Curated (and spackled) by Genevieve Hancock — who also created little, webby, framed treasures that I covet — this collection will remain on display indefinitely and many pieces are for sale. The painting above is by Mea Duke. (More pix after the jump. You have to see the needlepoint of a. . . I want to say. . . a goat-headed space alien of the old west.)

Below: There are some real nice details in this needlepoint by Victor Jiang. I forgot to ask him what the inspiration for this piece was. Victor marches to a different drummer.
