CREATIVE BUZZ: Time's running out to catch a visual smorgasbord in the DC/Harris Gallery's current exhibit, Musings, Mullings and Buzzings.

The show features new drawings, paintings and ceramic sculpture by Daryl Childs, David F. Brown and Michael Cajero. In theme, these pieces explore the human condition through the use of narrative, whimsical meanderings and expressive, sometimes aggressive gesture.

Musings, Mullings and Buzzings runs through December 4 in the DC/Harris Gallery, 41 S. Sixth Ave. Hours are 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and during Downtown Saturday Night. For information, call 629-9446.
