Have you ever wanted to craft clay pottery and ceramic pieces, but haven't had the time or courage to take a traditional class? Lose the excuse and head for All Fired Up, an innovative Hillboro boutique. Select an unfinished ceramic piece and paint it any way you wish to create a unique work of art.
This obscure midtown gallery presents small sculptures, original paintings and photographs, exclusively by local artists. There are no formal showings or openings. The work moves in and out of the gallery so quickly that such events would be difficult to schedule. The displays are a bit disconnected, and there is little formal organization here. Paintings and photographs hang side by side in a haphazard manner. Sculptures and small crafted items share glass cases. The studio's eclectic layout, with a series of rooms connected by doors, perfectly accents the varied works. It's a nice place to spend an afternoon and spend a few dollars on an original piece to liven up your decor.

The Exit has long been the source of live entertainment in the Elliston Square area, but over the course of its history it has suffered neglect. It is amazing that a club that was featured in movies and books, and even Rolling Stone magazine, could fall into such disrepair. Unwilling to see the club close down, Ned Horton stepped in and took over ownership. Today, after much renovation, including a new sound and lighting system, Horton has rebuilt the Exit's reputation as a premier music venue. Changing the name to Exit/In and booking a more eclectic mix of artists, Horton brought this little club, as well as the entire Elliston Square area, back to life.
