Senior comic book discount now through May 2015

You seniors built this world. And what did you get for it? They raised the retirement age. We can't fix that, but we can help you keep a little more of the money you worked hard for.

Sacramento seniors shout with joy!

Seniors 50 and older receive a 10% discount on all purchases February 2015 through May 2015! Please note: This discount cannot be combined with any other discount, coupon, or special offer.

Valid ID required
We're going to card you, especially if you don't look like you're old enough to drink yet. And don't worry:
1. We won't be moving the age requirement further out again and again, and
2. We won't tell anyone your age (like you care anyway).

Sacramento Artist Chris Cinder at Empire's Art Gallery

Meet February's Artist: Chris Cinder

Chris Cinder interprets songs into paintings. He puts his mark on fan favorite sci-fi films, for example, Star Wars. It’s a look into the mind of an artist with many interests and influences.

Take a look at “Ghost In The Machine” to get a closer look into the artists mind and you’ll get a view of a brand new world. Then explore his other original works and let your own mind lead you where it will.

Chris creates art that is accessible to the everyday art collector. It’s for “anyone looking for something more than a poster on their wall,” says Chris; and he adds, or for anyone who wants “some happy art for a mad world.”

Enjoy Chris’ works all month, February 2015. Plus, watch for upcoming dates to meet the artist at shop. Dates will be posted on our Facebook page.

8x10 Canvas: $50 each
12x16 Canvas: $70 each
16x20: Canvas: $100 each

Discounts available for multiple purchases.
