From shopping to sightseeing, our tastes tend to veer toward vintage. Hence, Best of Phoenix 2013's Vintage Phoenix theme. Because of our love of oldish stuff and said theme, New Times and R. Pela Contemporary Art co-present "Hot Plate!"

It's an exhibition of Phoenix-inspired plates, reminiscent of commemorative dishes you'd find while thrifting, made by local artists Michael Allen, Cheryl Brandon, Sue Chenoweth, Eric Cox, Kathleen Engstrom, Jeff Falk, Todd Grossman, Halldor Hjalmarson, Sarah Hurwitz, Christopher Jagmin, Peter Kuttner, Janet Deberge Lange, Annie Lopez, Melissa McGurgan, Ronnie Ray Mendez, Kim Sweet, Melany Terranova and Paul Wilson.

The show is on view from 6 to 10 p.m. during Third Friday, October 18, and by appointment through the end of the month. Admission is free. Visit or call 602-320-8445 for more information.

Fri., Oct. 4, 6 p.m.; Fri., Oct. 18, 6 p.m., 2013
