Best Of 2013: Place to Buy Art

With an emphasis on sculpture, mixed media and other 3D artwork, Commonwheel offers some of the finest and most unique art in the city, all handmade by locals. Consider the work of member Ace McCasland: "Ace is especially enamored with working with metal, experimenting with patinas and testing its limits ... Imperfections are embraced, even enhanced," says Wendy Daniels-Gillam, marketing representative for Commonwheel. The resulting jewelry is rough-hewn, raw and beautiful. Also worth noting: Buying art here supports a local business in an area hit hard by floods. As Daniels-Gillam reminds us, "Manitou has been through hell lately." — Jeff Koch
