First Friday: Unexpected places



After we hit up (take shelter in) all the usual galleries and shops displaying sometimes monstrous, often ecologically minded and morally provoking art, we’re going to step into the hallway behind El Cazador called the Hammond Arcade where we expect to see the Walking Art Show, an exhibit which runs from 5 to 8 PM and is put on by women from several local shops including Habitat Floral, Meghan Janea Designs, Green Door Photography and Shear Art Salon. The theme is "the circus," and the models will be dressed up in quirky attire as surreal as a Mad Hatter's tea party.


Speaking of quirky art, Michael deMeng will be showing his found art assemblage pieces and signing his book Dusty Diablos: Folklore, Iconography, Assemblage, Ole! at one of the newer venues, simply referred to as Studio/Gallery (1001 South 4th St at 4th & Oak). Winged demons and weathered doll faces abound. And for those of us who like to veer off the less traveled path (i.e., not just downtown) it's a nice adventure for the evening.


See you down the rabbit hole.
