Weekend Preview

The above logo represents a new initiative headed by the Arts Council of Indianapolis, launching this Friday. In partnership with the IDADA First Friday gallery tour, it looks as if all the galleries are stepping up to participate in this initiative. What might we expect to see? I think this weekend we should see lots of art, art lovers, and hopefully an increase in art sales. As part of this campaign to inspire people to buy art made by local artists comes, "Collecting Indy Art Made Easy: A Guide for Beginners". Created for first-time buyers, it'll have you gallery hopping in no time. Also of note, IDADA has their new web site up and running, check it out here.

The work hanging in the hair salon in the Murphy is easily the best in the building. The brushwork and technique were great, color choices were interesting and fluid. The figurative subject matter was unique, humorous and/or tragically real. A very nice show that deserved a much better venue, perhaps the one two doors to the south?

anonymous, you have very good taste in painting but poor taste in venue. alchemy is able to show what it does because it is what it is.
