Unique Views of Huntsville 2011, Art On Display at Lowe Mill, and More. . .
Last night was a lively one at the Huntsville Art League's new Gallery On the Square; Unique Views of Huntsville 2011 opened with a packed reception [below], and though the show is not being held in the Museum of Art this year, it is just as elegant and high-profile as ever. Accompanying the many paintings on display, including my work At the Computer [contemplated by its subject, Nik, above], were catered dishes from Huntsville's Cafe Berlin, wine, and live jazz. As part of the Unique Views show, HAL is displaying even more artwork, including Life in the 60's, at its main gallery on L&N Drive. The show will remain up until the 28th of August.
[Of course, being so close to Big Spring Park, Nik and I followed the reception with a walk around the pond, below.]
In addition to the Unique Views show (and long-standing displays at Reflectives Frame and Art Gallery and Blu Healing Spa), Sherbrooke Street From the 17th Floor is being featured in an Ascribing Artists exhibit on the third floor of Lowe Mill [below] for the month of August.
Last but not least, I have posted a new discussion topic this month on the Escape Into Life Blog relating to the "paint and sip" trend. Click here to read the post and share your thoughts.
