First Friday was fabulous! We met several new artists and the conversations were titillating, thank you too all that made our night a truly wonderful evening. Our journey began at North Art Studios where we met Sherri Burnett and experienced her beautiful paintings. She shared with us her love of art and that she loves how artists share experiences and information with each other. We visited Ruth Inman and she told us the story of her sunflowers painted on her garage wall. By the way, her sunflowers are incredible! Our last stop at North Art Studios was to Pumpkin Glass a beading paradise. They offer classes, have a spectacular inventory of beads and stones and are very friendly and helpful.
We then met my sister at Studios on Sheridan and visited with the artists and Steve Rouland. The music was perfect for the evening, the wine chilled and the gallery full of art lovers. We always enjoy visiting the Studios and the artists. It is a special place for Kevin and I, where we met, fell in love and celebrated our wedding reception.
CAC was full of familiar faces and fabulous art. The first spot where I learned relief and figurative sculpture under the guidance of Preston Jackson. Nikki Freeman Griner gifted me with my first Guest Artist spot in her studio. So may fond memories in these studios and galleries. The artists were welcoming as always and we were able to visit with Richard, Tanya and Kagan for several minutes before moving to out last stop of the evening.
Our last stop has now become a First Friday tradition…Casa de Arte. The environment is sublime, the artwork spectacular like the staff, food and drinks. We enjoy meeting the artists on exhibit, viewing their work and an adult beverage with our food. Shaun V Photography was in the house with her beautiful photography. She is very sweet and talented. Never disappointed and always ready to come back again and enjoy the life of the establishment. Thank you for making your stop a tradition where we like to stay awhile to share time with friends and family.
We hope you have enjoyed our First Friday experience. Until next time, keep creating and working towards your dreams.
