Gabriella Polony-Mountain is one of Kansas City’s most talented and diverse artists. Her bold, colorful body of work encompasses sculptures, mosaics, stained glass, repoussé, and weavings. Among her compositions was the mosaic floor of the old Main Library at 12th and McGee.

Christian Cutler, the director of the University of Central Missouri’s Gallery of Art and Design, tells the fascinating story of the 96-year-old Hungarian émigré who arrived in America in 1951 with her first husband, their luggage, and $120 and soon was winning awards for her architectural commissions. When a loss of strength in her hands made it difficult to work in other mediums, she turned to a loom and weaving.

Sit back and enjoy a modern holiday classic, "A Christmas Story" starring Darren McGavin. (1983) This film is both heartwarming and side splitting as nine-year-old Ralphie tries to convince his parents that an air rifle would be the perfect Christmas gift from Santa only to hear the refrain, "You'll shoot your eye out!"
