Abstract Imaginings has added a Closing Reception on September 26th from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.  Ashby Carlisle and I were thrilled with the overwhelming turnout for our initial reception and will be at Stone Gallery again this coming Saturday evening to close the exhibition.  Please join us for wine and nibbles.  Details below


The 2015 ArtAround the West End event will include a number of new artists as well as several former participants. According to Cathy Bates, event organizer for the ArtAround, “We’re really excited. We have some exciting new artists as well as some of our best artists returning.”

Bates noted that this year’s open studio event has extended its reach to include artists who live, work, worship, or study in the West End. “We have large communities of students in the law school and seminary. Many of them are creative; we wanted to open the event to them as well,” she asserted. “We’re seeing some great work from these new artists.

The event will take place the last weekend in September, with the opening exhibition and reception scheduled for Friday, September 25th, to be followed by two days of open studio exhibits on the 26th and 27th.  2015 will be the fourth year for the event.
