Opening Reception + First Friday with Live Music by Blake Walters

Friday, May 4, 2018 | 6:00 – 9:00 PM (Members’ preview: 5:30 – 6:00 PM)

Join us for the opening reception of Beauty of the Beast with live music by Blake Walters from 7:00-8:00 PM.  Painting, printmaking, drawing and sculpture inspired by animals from aardvarks to zebras will transform the gallery into a wild space. This thematic group exhibition explores dualities of wild and tame, human and animal as well as addressing the loss of animal habitats and efforts to document and preserve species. Armed with nothing but his acoustic guitar, Blake unspools folk pop tunes with inventive melodies and unexpected chord changes that tend to worm their way into your consciousness. Free and open to the public. Cash bar. Donations appreciated.
