This week we’re featuring a number of museum and gallery shows worth taking in now or during the holidays, when we all have a bit more time to get out and possibly need to escape our families. My co-host KQED Arts Editor Sarah Hotchkiss is the perfect guide for this endeavor, as she frequently escapes to local art exhibits.

Plus we talk about a country music ballet, an anniversary music festival and North Bay fire benefits.
