Go take a peek before the pieces wander off into collections and other exhibits, such as The Age of Spontaneous Generation at The International Museum of Surgical Science from December 14 through February 2014. Medusa Syndrome at Packer Schopf will be exhibited September 2014.

The Century Guild is a lovely gallery and I was mesmerized by the Klimts.
