Arty Girl: Angela Franks Wells at Five15

Photo By Angela Franks Wells

It's been raining this week and, as a native Phoenician, I'm ready for it to be over. I can't help it, I'm addicted to the sun.

So it's no wonder I'm already thinking about Friday. It's the first day this week that the forecast icon has that beloved cartoon sun showing.

But, after that baby goes down, I'm hitting Roosevelt St. for the Third Friday Art Walk. And, since I was in San Francisco on December's First Friday (bad arty girl, bad!), I've got a full plate of things to see...more of which I will blog about on Friday.

But for now, I'll tell you about Angela Franks Wells at Five15 Arts. I'm interested to see what she's produced because unlike many contemporary photographers, Wells still uses the old-timey film photography to capture her shots of "earthy abstractions".

And she even uses a dark room for processing...how nostalgic.
