IMHO, there are three perfect reasons to head out to First Friday tonight in Vancouver.
First, Leah Jackson, former gallery manager at Sixth Street Gallery, and current curator at Clark County Historical Museum will have her new gallery Angst up and running at 1015 Main Street. She knocked out the drop down ceiling of the former Christian Science Reading Room and opened the space up to its full height, discovering an amazing skylight. Leah is in the process of building the space out and filling it in with art, so come by and support her — Angst is a great new addition to Gallery Row.
And, just down the block, my good pal Steve Eichenberger has some of his incredible new sculptures at North Bank Artists Gallery. Wow, Steve, these are just beyond the beyond. Bravo!
Also, if you have a minute, check out Turtle Place tonight. Work is getting underway, and the mural is sweet.
PS: We WILL have the rest of the archives up momentarily! Sorry for any inconvenience.
