I can not tell you how many time when chatting with a fellow artist that I hear "Oh, First Thursday, I haven't been to that in years..."
Well, I go out. I find it important to know what is going on outside of the studio in my own city, even if it is uncomfortable or disappointing, and sometime it is a disappointment. I am pleased to say that February's events brought artistic delights!
A refreshing range, variety and the new. Here are the highlight for those of you that missed out on the sights:
Museum of Contemporary Craft: Work Time by Rowland Ricketts January 29, 2016 – April 23
Immerse yourself fully in the world of indigo! These huge swaths of cloth hang on the celling overhead, obscuring the spotlights at night one was enveloping in blue.
Pond Gallery: Wild Apple Girl by Rebecca Artemisa
NEW gallery UNION KNOTT: Wages of Fear by Sean Croghan
