First Friday is right around the corner for August, 2014. At Fresh Gallery, we like to highlight our artists during the First Friday festivities. For August, it is our pleasure to feature Marian Chamberlain and Angel Brame.
The July Art Walk is traditionally a smaller, more intimate affair. Summer is in full swing, the university galleries are on summer break, and a few of our members take time off for family and vacations. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have some amazing artist shows, demonstrations, music and more!
First Friday is right around the corner for July, 2014. At Fresh Gallery, we love the opportunity to feature our very own incredible artists. For July, we are proud to present Linda Passeri and Alan O’Neal.
Art Museum shuttle to connect Springfield’s hottest art destinations!
In June, First Friday Art Walk is partnering with the Springfield Art Museum for a show at The Creative Foundry and shuttle service between the Foundry and the Art Museum, where Watercolor USA holds its opening reception, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Overall, the June 6 Art Walk features art, live art demonstrations, artist receptions, live music and more in 23 participating venues 6-10 p.m. on First Friday.
For May at Arts & Letters, we are featuring two exciting shows. On our Gallery Wall for Things That Scare Me, painter Tyler Estes has created an entirely new body of work that takes a whimsical approach to the other; to the nightmares; to the things that scare us. On our Salon Wall, famed London-based artist Jonathan Meyer has created a series of archival pigment prints of dollar bills previously stapled to the ceiling of Springfield’s own whiskey bar and hot live music spot The Outland. Brother Wiley will be performing live during the opening reception on May 2 from 7:00-10:00pm.
The Springfield Police Museum, located in the Calaboose at 409 W. McDaniel, will be open 6-9 p.m. May 2 during First Friday Art Walk. The Calaboose was built in 1891 and used until the 1940s. The museum offers displays of uniforms, badges, equipment and weapons from the proud history of the Springfield Police Department.
