Dec. 5: Naughty & Nice in Santa Rosa

Every Christmas Eve, boys and girls around the globe await gifts from Santa. But naughty little boys and girls, especially in the folkloric traditions of Eastern Europe, have the horned figure known as Krampus to look forward to. The half-goat demon that punishes wicked children has captured the imaginations of artists for centuries, and is the subject of the new ‘Krampus Group Show,’ opening with a reception this month. Featuring the artwork of nine local talents and special live performance piece, the show is perfect for gift givers with a naughty streak. Tuesday, Dec. 5, at Beluga & Bee Studio, 24 10th St., Santa Rosa. 5pm. 707.318.9760.
