Unique exhibits, classes and workshops dot the pre-holiday calendar at Enjoy the Journey Art Gallery, located at 1168 Orchard Park Road in West Seneca.

November’s exhibit, “The Universe Series” with artist Virginia Koeppel, introduces her mosaic glassworks. “The universe only exists in the intellect of humans,” said the artist. “It encompasses the galaxies and planets but it's energy exists in every plant, animal and human and can be as minuscule as a single cell. My Universe Series in glass includes the Earth's genesis as well as space. We can merely try to replicate its beauty.”  An opening reception will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11, and the exhibit will remain on display through Nov. 26.
