Estuary Art Attack!
Tonight is the second Estuary Art Attack, with open galleries and studios, food, drink and more. And a number of Island galleries have scheduled art openings to coincide with the event. (And guess what? They’re all free!)
First up is “Heart of the Mountain,” a show featuring the poems and paintings of members of the Tachibana Ginsha poetry group incarcerated at the Heart Mountain internment camp in Wyoming during World War II. It’ll open with a reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday in the K Gallery at Rhythmix Cultural Works, 2513 Blanding Avenue.
The Folks at Frank Bette Center for the Arts will be hosting a reception for “What If?” a mixed-media show that explores all sorts of eternal questions with the work of more than two dozen artists (including local photog/guitar phenom Carl Weingarten, who e-mailed me about the show the other day), from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.They’re at 1601 Paru Street.
And last (but definitely not least), the folks at Autobody Fine Art have got an opening reception for “Artificial Nature,” a group show that explores the boundaries and intersections between what is termed “real” and what is termed “synthetic,” from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. They’ll have music and catered food. Autobody is at 1517 Park Street.
