Moberg Gallery on Grand Avenue wraps up its 20th anniversary show with a special celebration this Friday. It’s free and open to the public, and doors open at 5 p.m.

At 6:15 p.m., the artists Tim Wilson and Aaron Dooley will discuss their work and then demonstrate their screen-printing process to put some finishing touches on a few of their pieces on display. The Hybrid Trio New York saxophonist Adam Larson, Kansas City drummer John Kizilarmut and Chicago bassist Clark Sommers will perform throughout the night, and Jeff Bruning from Full Court Press will curate an array of Single Speed beers and cocktails.

The anniversary exhibition will remain through Saturday, before the gallery team resets the space for “Absurdities,” a new collection of subtly layered, deliberately smudgy drawings by recently retired Des Moines Art Center director Jeff Fleming. That show opens with a reception 5-8 p.m. Jan. 12.
