We've finally hit the art-meets-weather sweet spot, when temperatures are just right for making the art walk rounds during First and Third Fridays. A whole new crop of shows opens this week, and some cool shows are about to close. So start early, and enjoy this mix of art and nice weather while it lasts.
Lena Klett has a thing for exploring "how memories just below the threshold of consciousness inform experience" -- using paint, charcoal, embroidery, paper and other mediums to "hint at the lost details of a previous moment." The opening reception for her solo exhibition at Halt Gallery takes place Friday, March 20 from 6-10 p.m. While you're there, look for a new mural Laura Spalding Best is painting on one of the shipping container gallery's exterior walls. Find more information on the Halt Gallery website.
Work by Turner G. Davis included in the "Stone Soup" exhibition at Eye Lounge.

Turner G. Davis works will fill both the East Gallery and the Project Room come Friday, as Eye Lounge presents "mostly new images and found objects" with some pretty heavy themes -- including the existential search for meaning and "a yearning and aversion to clarity" in the 21st century. The title of the show references a man who convinces strangers to contribute unexpected items to his soup recipe while reflecting the "diversity of mediums" in the show. The opening reception this Friday takes place from 6-10 p.m. Find more information on the Eye Lounge website.Next Page
