If it were up to us, every day would be Third Friday with tons of new work from local artists who are just debuting and have been around for a while.
Here are six shows you won't want to miss:
1. What Goes On and What Takes Place @ Modified Arts
The women say the show will include one large piece by each artist, as well as smaller, supporting works and lots of evidence of their shared and individual processes. The opening is from 6 to 9 p.m.. Check out the Modified Arts website or the invite for more information.
2. Former Residents @ Regular Gallery
3. Things Take Time @ Jones
Christian Michael Filardo's hosting his debut solo exhibition, Here We Are Now, that'll be full of video, sculpture, collage and performance. The intermedia student at ASU will be around from 6 to 8 p.m.. For more info (and behind the scenes photos), check out the invite.
5. On Common Ground @ Heard Museum
The Heard Museum continues its free Third Friday series, NU (Native + You) with live music by Tierra del Fuego and art by Steven Yazzie, Jaune Quick-To-See-Smith and Doug Hyde.
