Do you like this story?
Well, it is quite late here but I am going to give this ago once again. Thanks for those who helped contribute some previews already. Much appreciated. So, with the knowledge that some of the weekends events have already been posted I have scaled this back some. And while I failed to send out notice in time for the opening at christopher west presents, I will lead with that one, just note that it opened on Thursday and not on First Friday. Anyway, I hope you all have a good night out. Looks like some interesting shows.

Harrison Center for the Arts
New work by Kyle Ragsdale
Friday 6pm - 9pm
Kyle Ragsdale will exhibit new work in the solo show, Historical Fiction this Friday. Inspired by his interest in films of the Merchant-Ivory genre, this work looks at how one time period interprets another based on its values and even reinterprets styles based on the fashions of the moment. His figures are romantic, ethereal, celebratory, but tinged with sadness - in some cases shifting from participants in a parade to mourners in a funeral procession on the same canvas.
In the Gymnasium - Civil War Ball with live music and re-enactors of the era in costume.
In Gallery No. 2 - Memories in the Making presented by American Senior Communities and Alzheimer's Association.
In Hank & Dolly's Gallery - Amateur Surveys by General Acres
The work hangs through November 28th.
